Es posa en marxa “Estimul’Art. Història, art i Alzheimer”

Es tracta d’un programa de visites al MUHBA i al Museu Frederic Marès per a malalts d'Alzheimer i el seu entorn més proper

The Barcelona History Museum (MUHBA), the Frederic Marès Museum and the ACE Foundation – the Catalan Institute for Applied Neurosciences, have initiated a project entitled Estimul'Art. Història, art i Alzheimer, consisting of a programme of visits to the two featured museums and including activities especially designed to be enjoyed by people suffering from Alzheimer’s disease as well as their family and carers.

The first participants in the programme are twenty people with mild or moderate degrees of the disease and all of whom are users of the ACE Foundation’s Daytime Care Service. The visits are brief and focus on just one museum piece, for example, the first session, which took place on the 19th of September this year, focussed on the Condestable, or Epiphany altarpiece (1464-1465), a work by Jaume Huguet that is currently to be found in the Santa Àgata chapel.

The programme includes a total of ten planned sessions, one per month up until next June, and always on Fridays. The objective of the initiative is to stimulate the cognitive capabilities of people suffering from the disease, thereby favouring the development of their memories. The series of activities as a whole will also undergo a qualitative evaluation.
