Life Story Work for People with Dementia, Ordinary Lives, Extraordinary People

This new book sets out the benefits of using a life story approach for people living with dementia and provides guidance for good practice.

The authors show how life story work can empower people with dementia to inform care practitioners and family members what care and support they may need now and in the future, by taking into account their past and their future wishes and aspirations. The book includes practical information on how to get started, ethical considerations such as consent and confidentiality, and considers issues of diversity and how to address them. The voices of practitioners, researchers and family carers sit alongside those of people living with dementia to present a wide-range of perspectives on life story work.
