Om boka

* Practical creative tools to start using now
* Abundantly illustrated directions for activities
* Overflowing with easy to apply creative ideas
This book is for those working in
- residential care
- day care
- at home
who seek creative solutions to improving the wellbeing of people living with dementia. It is suitable for those with limited experience, including family members, because the suggestions are practical and focus on what can be achieved; and for more experienced practitioners by offering opportunities to communicate more imaginatively and effectively. Each of these ideas has been successfully applied across a full range of dementia care situations.

=======================
Sarah Zoutewelle-Morris (1949-2019) was born in Dublin, Ireland and moved with her family moved to the U.S. when she was a child. She received a degree in fine arts/illustration at Syracuse University New York, and a BFA Graphic design/ Calligraphy at Carnegie-Mellon University PA. She taught calligraphy, art and design at CMU and the Ivy School of Professional Art & Crafts, lectured, exhibited, and did commissions. In 1977 she moved to Scotland, to the Findhorn Foundation, where in addition to design work she also ran the art gallery and gave art workshops. In 1984 she moved with her Dutch husband to the Netherlands, where she continued teaching, working in graphic design and calligraphy, exhibiting her art work, writing articles for various magazines, and illustrating books. In the mid-nineties, she made a leap to the social side of art and joined HBG, an organization of artists that developed and executed celebratory art and creativity projects in hospitals. She also worked as a creative consultant in a home for people with dementia for several years, which resulted in her first book, 100 Ideas for a Creative Approach to Activities in Dementia Care. Both her second book, A Generous Spirit: Exploring New Directions for the Arts, and her third, Pigments of Imagination, were published posthumously in 2020.
