A Literature-Based Intervention for Older People Living with Dementia

Written by Martin Gallagher, 14th September 2017

Funded by the Headley Trust, the conclusions of this six-month study found that the literature-based intervention provided by Shared Reading produces a significant reduction in dementia symptoms and benefits the quality of life of both the residents and staff carers.

The quantitative and qualitative research also found that short and long-term memory was positively influenced, listening skills were improved and the provision of activity by an external organisation enhanced patient care.
