Course Code

Reminiscence Arts for Dementia is a facilitated learning journey which prepares learners to conduct small-group interactive reminiscence arts sessions for persons living with dementia using objects, storytelling, and artwork materials. Learners are guided to prepare individual profiles and build these characteristics into their design, preparation, and implementation of reminiscence group activities. Live demonstration and skills practice are expected in this programme, where the key principles of person-centred approaches are spotlighted, deepened and integrated in the group learning.

Active participation, respectful communication and meaningful brainstorming are core ingredients in creating an inviting, playful social environment for purposeful contribution and enjoyment. Learners are invited on this experiential learning journey with curiosity, creativity, imagination and open-mindedness.
