The CCD embarked on a 8 week research with dance movement therapist, Elizabeth Rutten-Ng, and the Community Psychogeriatric Programme team (Changi General Hospital) at three Alzheimer’s Disease Association (ADA) Centres over Sept to Nov 2016. A total of 30 participants took part in this research effort which aimed to locate the impact of person-centred creative dance on persons with mild to moderate dementia.
The finalised report will be published in April 2017.
The CCD will also coordinate training sessions on person-centred creative dance with the staff of three ADA centres in 2017.
