Email Sherry Dupuis Academic Profile

Dr. Sherry Dupuis is the former director of the Murray Alzheimer Research and Education Program and the current co-Director of the Partnerships in Dementia Care Alliance. She is a Professor in Recreation and Leisure Studies and a University Research Chair at the University of Waterloo. Sherry draws on critical and relational theories and uses critical participatory action research and arts-based methodologies as a means of promoting personal transformation and social justice in dementia and long-term care. More specifically, her research uses the arts to challenge the stigma associated with dementia, change how we think about and approach leisure and the arts in the dementia context, expose inhumane and harmful policies and practices for people living with dementia and their informal and formal care partners, and promote more compassionate, relational approaches to care.
