Singing (and other arts and cultural activities) across the dementias
Camic, P. 2019. Singing (and other arts and cultural activities) across the dementias.
This presentation gives an overview of arts and health including a rationale why the arts are important for health and wellbeing looking at evolutionary, ethological, cultural and participatory evidence. It follows with a discussion about the arts and dementia care with specific focus on singing in community and residential settings. Data collection strategies and methodologies are also examined.
