- • Seven people with early-stage dementia and one carer participated in making their own stories during a digital storytelling workshop.
- • These participants experienced particular and varied challenges relating to telling a story and engaging with the technical process of digital storytelling. They were supported in overcoming these challenges through person-centred relationships with facilitators, allowing them to negotiate the help required.
- • During the workshop a number of positive changes were observed in the participants: increased confidence, improved speech, a sense of purpose and increased connection.
