Abstract:

"Finding the connection with a loved one afflicted with dementia is a challenge millions of people face: One in ten Americans has a family member with Alzheimer's, and one in three knows someone with the disease. This book offers care partners practical, hands-on ideas for meaningful, creative activities they can do with their patients, family members, or friends who have dementia. It also includes creative tips for busy care partners, offering quick and easy forms of renewal and respite. Too often, people living with dementia are entertained instead of engaged. Research shows that artistic and imaginative activities reduce the need for psychotropic medications. Doing activities together also increases social interactions, builds positive energy, and adds a sense of discovery to the day. Connecting in the Land of Dementia also features the innovative ideas of about seventy thought leaders in the field of dementia and creativity. Both family and professional care partners can use these activities, in areas such as music, movement, cooking, nature, storytelling, poetry, movies, technology, and more, to engage and connect with people who are living with dementia. Deborah Shouse is a writer, speaker, creativity catalyst, and dementia advocate. Her first book in the Love in the Land series is a best-seller for CRP. Her writing has appeared in a variety of publications including the Washington Post, Huffington Post, Natural Awakenings, Reader's Digest, Newsweek, Woman's Day, Spirituality & Health, the Chicago Tribune, and Unity Magazine"--
