Supporting Patients Living with Dementia During a Pandemic

Abraham, Nicola and Ruddock, Victoria (2022) Supporting Patients Living with Dementia During a Pandemic. Lived Places Publishing. ISBN 9781915271037


This book tells the story of how digital applied theatre was adapted to support patients living with dementia across hospitals in a pandemic. The challenges, successes, and opportunities that this unusual project, Innovating Knowledge Exchange, created are shared in this book that acts as a guide to person-centred online practice. The narratives of the book share insights into horizontal team structures as ways of supporting students learning this evolving practice that adapted to COVID restrictions and in doing so opened up a whole new world of possibilities for creative practice to support the wellbeing of older adult patients in acute hospital contexts. We hope you find the journey of the evolution of this new type of practice as useful and exciting to read as we have to live, dream, and advance.
