Abstract

We are exploring mechanisms to enhance the person-centred care of older people with dementia with tailored creative thinking and reflective learning techniques. In this paper we report a new tablet-based app to support carers and older people to reminisce, think creatively and learn through reflection. Creativity support is offered though a service that implements the creativity triggers technique adapted to a model of person-centered dementia care.
