B Sharp Program & Masks

The B Sharp Program is an example of a community effort that required collaboration, communication and a commitment to creating a dementia-friendly community. While the original B Sharp Program was focused primarily on the effects of music, the B Sharp Expansion Project will stretch the program further, reaching more people and continuing the work of creating a dementia-friendly community.

The B Sharp Expansion Project includes:

  • a visual arts engagement MASKS project in partnership with the Fort Collins Museum of Art
  • the development of a B Sharp Tool Kit designed to bring the program to other northern Colorado communities, including a separate committee solely addressing the needs of the Greeley, CO community
  • a research project, studying the effects of arts engagement programs on those with dementia as well as their caregivers
  • a marketing and partnership development team to look for future alignment with other nonprofit organizations and business partners
  • the development of a long-term strategy designed to ensure those living with dementia can access arts engagement resources into the future

Kaiser Permanente is proud to work alongside several outstanding community organizations on the B Sharp Expansion Project including:

  • Alzheimer’s Association, Colorado Chapter
  • Banner Health
  • Colorado State University
  • Dementia Friendly Communities
  • Fort Collins Museum of Art
  • Fort Collins Symphony
  • Home Instead
  • Larimer County Office on Aging
  • Seniors Helping Seniors
