Andrew will outline the design of the Southern Cross University Montessori research project, a study which aims to compare a Montessori-based approach to community respite care, with a ‘care as usual’ control. It will discuss the project and review some of the early findings and highlight some of the potential implications for people living in the community with dementia, their caregivers, and the staff who work with them.
Aim: This paper describes the design, delivery and evaluation of a pilot participatory art program targeted towards dementia dyads. The program was delivered in participants’ homes by professional artists, and aimed to support the wellbeing of family carers through shared creative activities with the person with dementia for whom they care.
“It’s waking up something that maybe went to sleep…I have never been artistic but it inspires you to do something new.”–– Artful participant
