Central to my research is the transformation of the culture of long-term care and rehabilitation so it is more humanistic and quality enhancing. I draw on the arts for their emotive and expressive nature (e.g. music, dance, improvisational play) to enrich the lives of those with dementia. I also draw on research-based drama and film as novel approaches to educational initiatives to effect personal and organizational change in long-term care, neurorehabilitation, and renal rehabilitation settings
