dc.description.abstractThere is a growing body of research pertaining to the elderly diagnosed with dementia and the benefits of expressive sensory experiences. This systematic literature review is intended to support sensory art therapy as a viable treatment option with dementia sufferers in geriatric care facilities. Research conducted explores dementia-related effects on the individual, summarizes different types of sensory art materials and directives, and promotes creative opportunities for specialized art therapy programming. Ultimately, this professional contribution encourages the implementation of sensory art therapy studios to be housed within geriatric care facilities. These studios would provide residents with easily accessible art therapy directives and art materials that will emphasize sensory exploration.en_US
