Summary

Persons with Alzheimer's are often socially isolated, which contributes to the further decline of their capacities. It is difficult for family members or caregivers to find a way to relate positively or to provide appropriate cognitive stimulation. The Virtual Museum visit website provides a support even for those unable to go to museums or too far away from actual cultural sites. In France alone there are over 800 000 persons with the disease, many of which could benefit from this support.

Challenge

Lack of stimulation contributes to cognitive decline and loss of autonomy for more than 800 000 persons with Alzheimer's in France alone.

Solution

Given the huge number of patients with Alzheimer's all over the world, it is vital today to provide virtual tools for those who cannot physically access cultural activities which are too far away or too tiring. Participating in the Art for All virtual web site, with the assistance of a trained volunteer or caregiver allows more positive social relationships and provides access to stimulating and validating activities.

Long-Term Impact

Positive adapted interactive experiences on the web site with the assistance of a volunteer or caregiver contributes to an improved understanding of the disease, and of the remaining capacities of the person. Other possible benefits observed include: improved mood, more cooperation, fewer behavioral symptoms, more active verbal communication, as well as the possibility of living at home longer.
