Meet Me at UMMA: A Museum Arts Experience for Persons with Mild Memory Loss and Their Care Partners

Meet Me at UMMA invites people with mild memory loss to enjoy a guided gallery experience along with family members or care partners for a Museum Arts Experience from 3 to 4 p.m. on Sunday, April 28 at the UMMA Shop. This program is designed for people who live at home and their companions.

If you or someone you care about is experiencing mild memory loss, research has shown that the visual and expressive arts can be good for your mind. In addition, great enjoyment is to be found in seeking out the sights, sounds, textures, and good feelings that come with looking at, learning, and sharing feelings about paintings, music, and other creative arts.

UMMA’s trained docents will accompany small groups for a guided tour and provide the opportunity for everyone to experience different kinds of art and share their responses.

Meet Me at UMMA is generously supported by the National Endowment for the Arts, the Monroe-Brown Foundation Discretionary Fund for Outreach to the State of Michigan, and individual donors.

To register for this program, email or call the local Alzheimer’s Association 800.272.3900 at any time. For more information, please contact UMMA at 734.764.1917  during normal business hours.
