Visitors Living with Alzheimer’s

In collaboration with the Shiley-Marcos Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center at the University of San Diego, we invite people with mild-to-moderate Alzheimer’s or a related disorder and an accompanying family member or friend to join us for unique docent-led tour. Museum docents engage participants in discussions about artworks to stimulate visual and verbal abilities, and to spark memory.

The program alternates between the four co-sponsoring museums, the Timken, San Diego Museum of Art, Mingei International Museum and the Museum of Photographic Arts.

Museum admission and tours are free of charge and are scheduled at the Timken on the following dates:

July 11, 2014
November 14, 2014
March 13, 2015
July 10, 2015
November 13, 2015

Pre-registration is required. Please call Lisa Snyder, LCSW at the Shiley-Marcos Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center at 858.622.4800 to register for a tour.
