The Dementia And Imagination research project website (www.dementiaandimagination.org.uk/) is worth keeping an eye on if you are interested in the impact of art in improving life for people with dementia and their carers.
This UK project plans to involve up to 450 participants and respondents across three different geographical areas and assess how art can make a difference for people with dementia living at home and in residential care.
As well as providing information about the study, the website also aims to develop as a wider resource for those interested in the potential of art in this area.
