A review of the literature has identified five types of interventions designed to support resilience (coping with adversity) in people with dementia, which comprise:
- Dementia Advisors.
- Peer Support Network Services.
- Visual Arts Enrichment Activities (VAEA).
- Memory Makers.
- Early-Stage and Beyond Community Activities (ESBCA).
Limitations to current understanding, and suggestions for further research, are outlined.
