By 

Abstract

This project examines the potential of adventure therapy as an adjunct treatment to medication for those with Alzheimer’s and dementia as a way to positively impact their quality of life. The research identifies common underlying mechanisms of adventure therapy that that correspond with therapeutic considerations for those living with Alzheimer’s and dementia. It is proposed that adventure therapy shows significant potential for being a beneficial form of therapy for those with Alzheimer’s and dementia. This literature review also provides the foundation for developing and implementing a tailor made Alzheimer’s adventure therapy program in Canada and future research designs
