Everyone is welcome during public hours, but we know that the noise and bustle of public hours can be over stimulating for some visitors.
To remove this barrier, we are pleased to offer Dementia-Friendly Days for people living with dementia and their friends and families, along with others who would benefit from a more relaxed, supported visit.
On the third Tuesday of every month, from 11:00 to 2:00, we’ll reduce sound levels and sensory stimulation from exhibition media and group tours to provide a more relaxed visit.
Program staff will be on hand to provide assistance with navigation and accessibility as requested, along with opportunities to engage with the art on display through conversation and hands-on resources. People living with dementia are welcome to visit on their own or with a guest as they prefer, and we welcome all levels of ability.
This is a drop-in, self-directed experience, not a facilitated program. For guided tours and group visits, please contact the Wellness team to book visits on other dates.
Pre-registration is optional, but we are happy to know if you are coming!
Admission is FREE thanks to our sponsors.
Email email@example.com or call 905-527-6610 x272 for more information or to register.
*We cannot promise a quiet experience in July or August due to our camp programming, but we will have Wellness staff on hand to support visitors who chose to attend.
