DEMENTIA GOING PROJECT

ON THE PROJECT : HOW to co-create HAPPY COLOURING?
Collaborating between Young and Old
Have you ever meet someone with dementia?
We created situations for some young people to have meaningful engagement with older Hong Kong citizens. These design partners include active senior citizens who are co-creators of their designs and also patients with dementia who share personal stories.
Collaging Dementia Stories
In spring 2018, Enable Foundation collaborated with HKYAF to use the Dementia Collage, a method originally developed by the Enable Foundation to guide young people to engage with senior citizens who live in care homes who have different levels of dementia, and collect their life stories.
Colouring our Hong Kong Histories
Do you know what our elderly did when they were young?
Over 30 senior citizens were engaged, and two main storylines were developed: From Farm to Table and Days of Our Lives. They are the collective stories of our older generations and became patterns for all of us to share while colouring happily.

不只是忘記 ， 歡迎來到「腦化後樂園」
BEYOND MEMORY LOSS – WELCOME TO DEMENTIALAND
With the risk of exaggeration, in Hong Kong dementia is considered to be part of the natural ageing process, and, thus, receives little special attention. Because of its complexity, dementia is mysterious for many people and generally understanding is limited to memory loss only. While the medical and social care experts are busy developing cures and services to help patients with dementia and their carers, we believe the contribution of design researchers could lie in enabling the public to better understand this mystery. From designing demented objects, we want to expand the concept of dementia and magic to the whole city. We aim to prepare all citizens ready to welcome patients with dementia to go out and live within their communities. The parameter of our Neuro City design research project is to get the public to have a better understanding of dementia by inviting them to step into “DementiaLand (2018)”, a dementia-inspired magical environment, to experience different symptoms that go beyond just memory loss.
