Understanding meaningful activity in dementia care




Programme summary

Meaningful activity and having a purpose in life is a fundamental human need. People with dementia deserve every interaction, whether an activity of daily living or a leisure activity, to be meaningful and positive.

Participants will gain an understanding of what makes activity meaningful, and how to personalise an activity programme to address the social and emotional needs of people living with dementia.

Who is this programme for

  • Support staff from care settings (including volunteers) who work directly with people with dementia and staff who are nominated activity co-ordinators
