Reviews
Review Quotes
'To call this book simply groundbreaking would belittle it. This is a book to break down prison walls...I have many books I value, but this book is in my top 10 from the past 40 years... I would make this an essential purchase for first-year students right across nursing, occupational therapy, physiotherapy, social work and psychology but this is not an exclusive list...It is hard to find a superlative to describe how heartily and sincerely I wish to recommend this book. It is great value for money, a pleasure to read and will be one of those book you will want to treasure for the rest of your career and probably beyond.' - Sue McBean, Lecturer, University of Ulster (THE Textbook Guide 26 May 2011) 'This book brings together so many diverse and established practitioners from the field of arts and dementia care who have been pioneers in terms of the approaches adopted' - Claire Craig, Senior Lecturer and Researcher, Occupational Therapy, Faculty of Health and Well-being, Sheffield Hallam University, UK 'This book provides a refreshing new approach in the area of dementia care' - Christine Toye, Associate Professor, Faculty of Nursing, Midwifery and Post-graduate Medicine, Edith Cowan University, Australia 'What is creativity?

Physical health is just one of the factors which defines a person's experience of dementia. Focusing on their emotional and spiritual well-being can hold the key to unlocking dormant abilities. Dementia care which provides quality social interaction and day-to-day opportunities for self-expression can lead to an enhanced quality of life.

It highlights the ways in which a range of creative approaches can support the psychological and social needs of those with dementia. Supported by research evidence and clear theoretical frameworks, individual chapters focus on various methods, including: the Spark of Life Philosophy - enabling feelings of belonging, closeness and friendship within a safe psychological environment photography, videos and storytelling - encouraging the stimulation of feelings, memories and imagination visual art and music therapy - highlighting the use of non-verbal communication to express thoughts, feelings and the inner self dance and drama therapy - allowing the embodiment personhood through movement, improvisation and play therapeutic humour - helping to harness the power of laughter over health, mind, body and spirit With practical suggestions to guide their implementation Creative Approaches to Dementia Care adds a new dimension to traditional discourses within this important field of care.
