Barcelona Alzheimer Treatment & Research Center

Estimul’Art

Fundació ACE’s activities related to visual arts, music, knowledge of the environment, etc., for Day Care Unit patients are grouped together under the name Estimul’Art

Specifically, Fundació ACE, the Frederic Marès Museum and the Museum of the History of Barcelona run a programme of activities, “Estimul’Art: history, art and Alzheimer’s“, aimed at people in the early phases of Alzheimer’s disease. The programme is based on a combination of programmed visits to these museums for reduced groups of patients. Patients can also attend these visits in the company of family members or carers. The aim of the visits is to stimulate improvements in patients’ memory and emotional capacities, as well as to assess scientifically this capacity for improvement.
