Guide and participants at a dementia friendlly tour

Extraordinary: dementia-friendly tour

Looking at fashion / clothing in an interactive way stimulates the long-term memory. This not only has a positive effect on the self-confidence and general well-being of the person with dementia, but also on the carer and the relationship between the two.

During the “Extraordinary” dementia-friendly tour, participants look at a number of display cases in the Collection Presentation, which looks back on four decades of Belgian fashion, supplemented by a selection from the museum's historic collection. It offers people with dementia and their carers the opportunity to reminisce in a relaxed atmosphere, to share personal experiences and to talk to each other. The themes change regularly.

Dementia remains one of the most important societal challenges of our time and is a condition affecting an increasing number of people. With this dementia-friendly tour, MoMu is aiming to contribute towards a dementia-friendly society.
