TimeSlips Fosters Play and Joy
Swinnen, de Medeiros & Pruchno (2018)
"Close readings of the transcripts and notes from the programs resulted in three observations: people learned to play again, there is power in playing together, and play often led to expressions of joy. Overall, the notion of play may be a helpful framework for future research into innovative arts-based approaches to dementia care."

Bahlke et.al (2010)
