‘Stories in dementia care: we all have a story and cannot be understood without it. Life story work typically involves helping people to make a record of some aspects of their life, most often in a book or template, although more creative approaches do exist, including the use of IT and stop frame animation. Increasingly, life story work is being promoted as an important tool for enhancing person-centred dementia care’. To find out more, follow this link to read an article from the Guardian newspaper.
Congratulations to the dementia services in Harrogate and District which have been awarded the Yorkshire and Humber Dementia Quality Award, for the innovative approach that the local NHS has taken to make improvements for patients, their families and carers.
