Listening to the Narrative Experience of Dementia
Voucher Scheme Round 3
This project – built around a co-design session delivered at the third development lab – seeks to develop a set of guidelines for the Dementia Connect project to facilitate the full participation of people living with dementia in arts, cultural, and design activities. These guidelines are being developed with people living with dementia in the Liverpool region and will draw on the experience and expertise of the wider DEEP network across the UK.
The session held on the 16th November brought together members of the of the Dementia Connect team together with people living with dementia and their care partners from The Liverpool Service User Reference Forum (SURF), Chinese Wellbeing, African Elders and Retain WellBeing. Themes included discussing what’s important about creative opportunities and what helps, or hinders, meaningful participation in creative activities?
