We propose to develop a personalised digital memory box to collect media and artefacts to stimulate the person with dementia. ‘Box of our Memories’ will be a digital repository of media and artefacts to be used directly by people with dementia and supported by family members and carers. It will be a personal museum of content aimed to stimulate memory, improve mood and reduce agitated behaviour. It will also enable family members to learn more about their loved one.
Main projects Intellectual Outcomes are:
- Methodology Handbook (ISBN and Online) including a process guide and Implementation Strategy for decision makers
- An innovative formal Continuous Professional Development (CPD) training courses for adult educators
- An online informal adult education toolkit for carers, family members, volunteers
- The Box of our Memories Platform and App
