Evidence-based research shows “remaining present” is KEY

to offsetting the impact or preventing delirium and may slow loss of cognitive function for individuals with dementia.  

The arts have a unique ability to help individuals remain present and in touch with their identity. Studies show 10—40% of elder patients already have delirium upon hospital admission, with an additional 25—56% of elders developing delirium while in the hospital setting. Individuals with delirium experience adverse outcomes and are often

re-hospitalized. Interventions that help individuals remain present are vital and an important element of health and well-being.
