Abstract

Coinciding with the exhibition Sensory Rooms: Designing Interventions to support dementia care, this event will feature short presentations and a panel discussion focusing on how multi-sensory stimulation and design can be delivered in an effective and successful way within a dementia care context, the challenges care homes are facing, and how the education and training needs of care workers in this area can be better addressed. The exhibition and the event are the results of an interdisciplinary research project is led by Dr Anke Jakob (design researcher, Kingston University London) in collaboration with Dr Lesley Collier (senior lecturer in Occupational Therapy, University of Southampton) and funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council UK (AHRC).
