Well-Chosen Objects Support Well-Being for People with Dementia and Their Care Partners
Halpin-Healy, Carolyn
Journal of Museum Education, v42 n3 p224-235 2017
Arts & Minds programs aim to promote well-being for people with dementia and their care partners. Educators must balance the needs of participants with the given conditions of display in the museum. While connection to the art historical canon is a consideration for program planning, the choice of artworks for contemplation and dialogue ultimately is contingent upon intersecting criteria that also take into account symptoms of dementia, accessibility, participant interests and the inherent qualities of the art object.
