Lost in art too: challenging perceptions of dementia

Allbwn ymchwil: Cyfraniad at gyfnodolynErthygl

The art participation project 'Lost in Art too' was originally developed for people with dementia and their carers, providing an enjoyable activity to do together and also to demonstrate the strengths of the person with dementia. The project was then expanded to bring together schoolchildren to work alongside people with dementia and their carers, with the aim of challenging perceptions about dementia. Five people with mild to moderate dementia participated, attending with family members. The two-hour weekly sessions took place in Denbigshire, north Wales over 10 weeks. In the ninth session a group of fifteen primary school children (aged 9-10 years) attended the group with teaching staff. Afterwards the children participated in focus groups and a thematic analysis was under taken. Some of the responses of the children are presented under the following themes: nervousness about attending the session; expectations due to beliefs about people with dementia; enjoyment of working with people with dementia; and opinion change
