Art and Dementia

At Stirling University’s Dementia Services Development Centre,  the Director is very positive about art being made and viewed by people with dementia.

Professor June Andrews, believes that the illnesses’ disinhibiting side effect serves to help people recover their childhood enjoyment of arts: singing, dancing, painting.  The centre often holds art exhibitions with a mixture of work by professional artists and dementia patients.

The Centre itself may be the world’s first purpose-built building for dementia sufferers, and incorporates many beautiful and useful elements.
