What do we do:
Estimul'Art is the program of activities that Fundació ACE proposes to the users of the Day Care Unit related to music, visual and performing arts, knowledge of the environment and other artistic expressions.
Fundació ACE, the Frederic Marès Museum, the History Museum of Barcelona and the Scenic Arts Museum develop the program of activities "Estimul'Art: history, art and Alzheimer's", aimed at people suffering from Alzheimer's disease in the early stages.
The program is based on a set of scheduled visits for small groups of patients to the mentioned museums. The users can also attend these visits accompanied by relatives or caregivers.
The goal is to stimulate their memory capacity and enhance the emotional part of people with Alzheimer's and other dementias, as well as to scientifically evaluate the improvement.
Another one of the branches of the Estimul'Art program is the musical one. Thanks to the Apropa Cultura initiative of the City Council of Barcelona, users can enjoy a morning in the Auditorium listening to the orchestra of Barcelona or doing a workshop of traditional songs with instruments.
“Art, in all its expressions, is an intrinsic part of the human being. In this sense, artistic education is a vital need that, besides delighting the senses, nourishes the soul.”
Dr. Mercè Boada, medical director of Fundació ACE.
