Art for Dementia

My research focuses on examining how the environment (e.g., technology, physical design and social aspects) may impact the care experiences of persons with dementia. To innovate and improve dementia care, I use a range of methods to find innovative solutions to address problems in care facilities and acute hospitals. In my Ph.D dissertation, I used an appreciative inquiry action research approach to engage staff, leaders, patients, and families to co-create changes for patients with dementia.
