This year also included the public expansion of Reflections: The Nasher Museum Alzheimer’s Program, which provides engaging and interactive museum tours to visitors who live with memory loss, as well as their families and care partners. Reflections tours include guided discussions throughout the galleries, plus musical performances and hands-on art experiences. The museum served over 450 visitors on Reflections tour this year and the program continues to grow rapidly.
One participant shared, “I love the Nasher program. “I depend on it for connections, inspirations, meditative moments, sharing times, it cheers me up and helps keep me whole .”
Duke University students are involved in Reflections as museum Gallery Guides and volunteers. Kaitlin Henderson, a Duke graduate student, created this short documentary about the program.
