Lab4Living’s ‘Journeying Through Dementia’: Living well with dementia in Scotland
Claire Craig, Lab4Living has recently had two successful visits to Edinburgh to share her research relating to living well with dementia. Designers Tom Maisey and Helen Fisher joined Claire in her visits to Allied Health professionals in Edinburgh who are keen to take the supported self-management programme, Journeying through Dementia, forward in Scotland.
This work is being undertaken in collaboration with Elaine Hunter, National Allied Health Professions Consultant, Public Policy, Alzheimer Scotland. Claire and Tom also had the opportunity to visit the Scottish Dementia Working Group, individuals living with dementia who are themselves advocates for people with dementia. Over the last ten years, members of this group have been integral in developing the Journeying through Dementia intervention with Claire. The group discussed the value of approaches that embrace co-creation and which draw on the expertise of people living with dementia.
