Abstract

Care home populations frequently feature older people who often experience poor physical health and cognitive difficulties, along with vulnerability to psychological and social stressors. To date there has been no systematic review which focuses on the impact of arts for health activities to the care home population. Evidence was sourced from several databases and 71 studies were deemed eligible for inclusion in this review. These studies underwent data extraction and quality appraisal and the findings associated with health, wellbeing and quality of life are presented within this paper.
