Hidden Treasures welcomes guests on the Thursdays listed below.

Pre-registration is required as the group is limited to 16.

We are pleased to present Hidden Treasures, a specialized art appreciation program for individuals with early to middle stage Alzheimer’s disease or a related dementia and their caregivers. Developed by the Fitchburg Art Museum in collaboration with Life Care Centers of America, The Highlands, Hidden Treasures is an adapted art education program designed to promote failure-free learning and interaction through discussions of selected works of art. Specially trained museum education staff and docents will use Alzheimer’s–friendly communication techniques to encourage participants to express feeling and thoughts. Each 45-minute session will have a general theme, and some sessions will include hands-on art-making or music. The program’s goal is for caregivers and their patients to leave the sessions with feelings of being valued and understood.
Hidden Treasures is free, but participants must pre-register with the Fitchburg Art Museum  by calling 978-424-4505 or by emailing sdiachisin@fitchburgartmuseum.orgPrograms are limited to 16 participants and require a caregiver with each adult with Alzheimer’s.
