Museum Programmes for older adults

We are conducting research about museum programmes for older adults – we are particularly interested in virtual programmes for older adults with cognitive impairment developed during the COVID -19 pandemic. Cognitive impairment cognitive functions may include memory loss or loss of other cognitive functions such as language, vision or spatial perception: this may affect people with dementia, Parkinson’s, stroke survivors, or people who have experienced a traumatic brain injury. The project title is ‘The impact of virtual museum programmes on older adults with cognitive impairment during the COVID-19 pandemic.’ The study has been approved by the UCL Research Ethics Committee.

We would like to hear from you about what type of programme you normally provide. This study will help us to understand what kinds and sizes of programmes are the most popular for older participants. Also the survey results will help museums develop better programmes for older adults in the future. The survey will take 10-15 minutes.

The study is being conducted by Joy (Wei-Tung) Chiang, a PhD student at University College London and is supervised by Professor Helen Chatterjee. For further information contact:
