Delaware Historical Society Senior Outreach!

The Delaware Historical Society has developed a series of programs to engage audiences at adult day care centers, assisted living facilities, and adult residences. These one-hour visual presentations utilize images and objects from our collections that are designed to spark participation—whether it’s through discussion, sharing memories, or remarking on the collection. The goal of the program is to stimulate people both mentally and emotionally.

Our trained interpreters will come directly to your site.  Cost is $100 plus applicable mileage (0-49 miles= free, 50-99 miles= $30, 100-149 miles= $40, 150-200 miles= $50).

To schedule a program, please call (302) 295-2388 or email
