Words for a Journey – The Art of Being with Dementia
Words for a Journey – The Art of Being with Dementia collects practical knowledge on living with dementia. Though many hold negative impressions of the disease, there are still many who are living well with dementia. They have not given up everything in their life just because they have the disease. The book collects wisdom and stories from such people, and extracts its essence to be shared widely. More specifically, the information in the book is formatted into small pieces of hints. Each hint describes a “context” that people with dementia and the people around experience, and a “problem” that is commonly associated with the situation. Following this, a “solution” on how to cope with the problem is described. By reading the information, current problems can be worked to be solved, and any potential risks of future problems can also be reduced.
