Project-based treatment will be addressed as a possible technique to utilize with people with dementia. Project-based treatments are designed to facilitate increased engagement for meaningful activities as part of a long-term, collaborative project that culminates in the creation and presentation of a tangible product, such as a care partner training manual or video. Project-based treatments have been successfully implemented with people with traumatic brain injury. Evidence from the traumatic brain injury population will be reviewed and possible applications of project-based treatment for people with dementia will be discussed.
