Rijksmuseum Boerhaave offers dementia-friendly tours especially for people with dementia, their loved ones and care providers.
Research by VUmc shows that this way of ‘viewing together’ has a positive influence on the self-confidence and mood of the person with dementia. It also improves the relationship with the supervisor. Moreover, the museum offers a safe and inspiring environment to come into contact with fellow sufferers. The focus during the tour is not on the disease, but on experiencing an inspiring afternoon.
