Designed specifically for individuals with early stage dementia and their family members or caregivers, Meaningful Moments is a monthly program that includes a gallery discussion, an interactive component, and an art-making activity in the Art Studio. Participants will have the chance to relax and connect with art in the galleries, share stories, and gain inspiration.
The program is free, but reservations are required and space is limited. For more information or to register, call 214-922-1251 or e-mail access@DMA.org.
Meaningful Moments is also available for groups from assisted-living facilities specializing in memory care. Call to check date availability and to schedule a visit. Themes and dates vary.
