Museum van Deinze en de Leiestreek - Mudel

Persons with (young) dementia

Experiencing art not only leads to an improvement in the quality of life of the person with dementia, but also has positive effects on the caregiver and the relationship between both of them. The guided tours in the mudel respond to this perfectly.They are hosted by Dr. Geriatrician D. De Landsheere who followed an additional training as a museum guide.

Illustrative paintings and soft music are used to conjure up memories from the past or provoke insightful comments. The Heritage Department also lends itself perfectly for reminiscence techniques. More information is available via
