New arts-based intervention improves wellbeing for people with dementia

New research led by the Royal Holloway University of London has demonstrated that RADIQL™, an innovative intervention piloted in South London, steadily improves the quality of life and wellbeing of people with dementia living in care homes.

  • Age Exchange, the organisation behind RADIQL™, is developing a training programme for care home staff across the country to deliver the intervention, based on the use of arts to improve communication and meaningful engagement for people with mid – high levels of dementia 

Results from an independent evaluation released by the charity Age Exchange suggests that a new method using creative arts and reminiscence to influence communication and wellbeing in the present, improves the quality of life of people living with dementia.
