As dementia is becoming a significant global health issue, the provision of creative engagement programs to improve quality of life is essential. Various international programs of this kind have been shown to offer vast therapeutic benefits and allow individuals to interact socially, creatively, and intellectually. One such innovative program was initiated in Israel at the height of the Corona pandemic and its success has led to various other achievements and developments. Dalya* will present her work and program in a lecture on Wednesday 29th December at 20:00.
