    One thought on “Connecting in the Land of Dementia: Creative Activities to Explore Together”

    1. This book has many creative ideas for how to connect with your loved ones who have dementia. It surprises you with many stories of people with dementia overcoming their initial resistance to an activity or engaging in something unexpected. I tried many of the ideas with my grandpa, successfully. Some of the ideas I tried: using a stuffed animal to connect with him (he talks for the stuffed animal); helping him write a mother's day poem for my grandma; getting him to laugh during commercial break [...]

    2. Deborah Shouse shares her personal frustration in trying to stay connected to her beloved mother as she sank deeper into Alzheimer's, and the simple ways she found to engage meaningfully with her. After her mother's death, she began her quest to help others do the same thing--only she took it a whole step further by consulting with experts in the field on what works and why. This book is infused with her love for her mother, her frustrations as a caregiver, her sorrow and grief, and also her det [...]

    3. This is a second book by Shouse. Her first (Living in the Land of Dementia) focuses on her relationship with her mother, who is living with dementia. This book is broader. It's a product of Shouse reading, interviewing, observing and participating in arts-based activities for people living with dementia. The book offers advice to care partners (family members or paid caregivers such as activity directors) on how to engage people living with dementia through painting, drama, music, contact with n [...]

    4. I'm delighted to have received an advance copy of Deborah Shouse’s "Connecting in the Land of Dementia." I found it to be a lively and essential guide for any dementia care partner who wants to help a loved one feel joy and purpose through simple, fun activities. It’s also a rare collection of wisdom from dozens of experts worldwide who specialize in creative dementia care (contributors Shouse interviewed on her travels as a speaker and advocate). Just as a care partner can help a person wit [...]

    5. This is the book I wish I had when I needed it. It specifically addresses the issue of socializing without frustration. When you and a loved one with dementia diverge in your understanding of the world, you need new skills to navigate the changing relationship. When my mother was failing, I did resist the arguments over what day of the week it was, or well, anything, but conversation was awkward. This book has suggestions for caregivers to put the "fun" back in dysfunctional. I'd been taking som [...]

    6. We want to hold on to our loved ones as long as we possibly can. Deborah Shouse's lovely, creative, comforting book is chock full of great ideas for all kind of activities that can help keep that emotional connection going. While an elderly parent might struggle with remembering a name, they might remember a favorite song, or the smell of a favorite dish, or the feel of a paintbrush in their hands again. Although this book is clearly aimed at caregivers, it is also, not surprisingly, an upliftin [...]
