Person-centered care emphasizes the importance of putting the individual before the illness to provide holistic support. This book offers practical advice for arts therapists and health care professionals delivering person-centered dementia care. The contributors are all practising healing arts therapists who show how music, dance and the visual arts can be used in partnership with person-centered care to support those with dementia. Using case studies of the use of the different arts therapies, they illustrate the many beneficial effects of this approach to healing arts therapies for people with dementia. These include improved memory, reduced anxiety, increased self-esteem and better communication, leading to the added benefits of a sense of community and successful group interaction.
