    Description

    While the positive impact of art on people’s mental health and wellbeing is increasingly recognized by doctors, a recently released study by the University of Canberra shows the significant benefits of experiencing art in a safe space for those living with dementia. 

    The study published in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease reported reduced levels of depression, and improved quality of life, as well as cognitive function, in people with dementia who participated in a special program at the National Gallery of Australia in Canberra.
