Bringing art and creativity into elder care settings helps families reconnect with loved ones who have dementia. In this moving talk, Anne Bastings shares how asking “beautiful questions” — questions that don’t have a right or wrong answer — opens up a shared path of discovery, imagination and wonder. “If we can infuse creativity into care, caregivers can invite a partner into meaning-making.”

This site was inspired by my Mom’s autoimmune dementia.

It is a place where we separate out the wheat from the chafe, the important articles & videos from each week’s river of news. Google gets a new post on Alzheimer’s or dementia every 7 minutes. That can overwhelm anyone looking for help. This site filters out, focuses on and offers only the best information. it has helped hundreds of thousands of people since it debuted in 2007. Thanks to our many subscribers for your supportive feedback.

The site is dedicated to all those preserving the dignity of the community of people living with dementia.
