Training cultural institutions to engage with the dementia community

Learn how museums and cultural institutions are well-placed to adopt a more pivotal role in engaging better with the dementia community.

This step explains how museums and cultural institutions are well-placed to adopt a more pivotal role in engaging better with the dementia community.

Dr Hannah Zeilig and Prof Paul Camic explain how a new training programme that they have developed is able to provide museum staff with the tools to do this more successfully.

This step also highlights how often even those who are trained to work with people living with dementia don’t always have the opportunity to pause and reflect on the nature of the individuals that they help care for or engage with.

Do you know of any cultural institutions that provide engagement opportunities for the dementia community which you would recommend? If so, please remember to share these in the Communal Pinboard at the end of the week.
