Welcome to Artful Moments: Shared Learning Module 2: Understanding the Participant. Here, we will learn about the people who participate in our programs.
The goal of this Module is for you to understand the impact of dementia on a person and how the changes in the brain that are caused by dementia can affect their participation in an Artful Moments-style program.
By the end of Module 2 you will be able to:
- Describe some age-related changes that people may experience as they age
- Describe five areas of ability that are affected by dementia and why these are important to understand
- Describe some of the strengths that may remain for a person with dementia
