A Creative Toolkit for Communication in Dementia Care [9781849056946]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review
How can carers and relatives support a person's identity, relationships and emotional wellbeing through changes that occur in the later stages of dementia? Drawing on over ten years' experience of working with people with dementia, Karrie Marshall provides a toolkit of tried and tested creative activities to support communication and relationships. Activities are vast and varied, with outdoor activities such as bird-watching and star-gazing aimed at supporting physical health, artistic activities such as collage creation to support identity, and musical activities such as sounds and voice warm-ups to support self-expression. Marshall also sensitively covers end of life care for people with dementia, explaining how emotional support can be provided through gentle breathing activities and even puppetry, as well as covering the legal importance of power of attorney.
AUTHOR: Karrie Marshall has a background in nursing and person-centred counselling. She managed a care home for people with profound and complex needs, and worked for ten years as a lecturer in health and social care at Inverness College. In 2011 she founded the social enterprise Creativity in Care (www.creativityincare.org), which promotes inclusive and joyful work in care settings and in the community for people living with dementia and people who use mental health and learning disability services. She is also the author of Puppetry in Dementia Care: Connecting through Creativity and Joy, also published by JKP. Karrie lives in Inverness, Scotland.
