dc.description.abstractThe ""Buddy"" program uses intergeneration and occupational approaches to create rich social connections for both individuals with dementia and TWU occupational therapy students so the two can benefit each other. These students were given the opportunity to volunteer at Amazing Place and engage in various programs throughout the day with the participants who have mild to moderate dementia. The goal of this program is to increase confidence and knowledge in 1st year OT students before they venture off into fieldwork 2. In addition, the goal for the Amazing Place Participants is to increase social participation and activity engagement while applying these intergenerational approaches.
