Play is an agent of change for healthcare professionals and acts as an alternative therapeutic modality for older adults. It can transform illness and hopelessness into opportunities for creativity, enrichment and joy for all diverse backgrounds. This workshop will explore the benefits of introducing boundless play, healthcare clowning and drama therapy for family and professional caregivers as universal tools for working with individuals with memory loss.
