Meaningful activity is vital for people’s health and wellbeing. It is important to support people to continue engaging in meaningful activity when they have dementia and sight loss but it can be challenging for families and professional carers. The Research Discussion Paper presents the findings of a scoping study aimed at gaining more understanding of these challenges and how they can be addressed through better information, resources and training.
