About the event

A half-day seminar presenting the RADIQL™ ground- breaking evidence-based relationship centred dementia care intervention and training models.

The day will provide:

  • An overview of an intensive and independent research study, undertaken by Royal Holloway University of London on Reminiscence Arts Practice
  • Highlight the interim report findings by Royal Holloway University of London demonstrating the statistically significant improvements to wellbeing and quality of life for people with dementia when participating in Reminiscence Arts
  • An introduction into the impact of the Reminiscence Arts practice on measurable outcomes using robust Dementia Care Mapping and Cost Benefit Analysis
  • The development of Reminiscence Arts as a cutting edge dementia intervention
  • How it is being adapted for use to train social care staff in care delivery and how it maps to the new Social care Certificate and Social Care health qualifications

The day will be a mixture of presentations, discussions and an opportunity to experience aspects of the intervention. Reminiscence Arts describes Age Exchange’s unique approach to working creatively with people living with advanced dementia and related conditions. Reminiscence Arts recognises and values embodied and sensory memories as well as verbal or narrative recall. It uses a breadth of art including visual, music, drama, dance, movement, sensory, touch, drama, the spoke and written word and song.
