Reminiscence Arts for Dementia

Reminiscence Arts for Dementia is a facilitated learning journey which prepares learners to conduct small-group interactive reminiscence arts sessions for persons living with dementia using objects, storytelling, and artwork materials.

This blended course aims to guide learners with theoretical and practical knowledge of preparing individual profiles and build these characteristics into their design, preparation, and implementation of reminiscence group activities. Live demonstration and skills practice are expected in this programme, where the key principles of person-centred approaches are spotlighted, deepened, and integrated in the group learning.

Learners must complete self-paced e-learning modules before attending classroom training sessions to fully appreciate the learning activities in class.
