Reviews

"Remembering Home provides a compelling argument that home is one of the most enduring and important concepts in the minds and hearts of people with dementia. It is a timely and practical guide to working with memories of home and should be required reading for anyone who works with people who have dementia."

"A wonderful book! Place as well as time as the taproots of memory is beautifully demonstrated in this book. This book also offers strategies for health care professionals and activity staff members in bringing place and home into their programmed activities and conversations with older adults who have dementia."

"Exceptionally well written and provides both an informed and compelling argument for selfhood affirming care and a practical guide on enriching the practices of residential care facilities."

"Every long-term-care facility should make it available to staff members. Highly recommended."

"Accessibe, and engaging... Remembering Home is predominantly geared towards providing advice for health care professionals and those engaged in caring for memory-challenged adults in health care facilities... is it also use for those family members and friends with loved-ones suffering from dementia."

"A sound reminder to all caregivers that all people have pasts, and those pasts are part of who they are today and create, in some ways, their future... Remembering Home: Rediscovering the Self in Dementia is a tool for families to remain connected to loved ones who are experiencing loss of memory... This person-centered approach to affirming older adults with dementia demonstrates the importance of sharing the past with the hope that it will make the journey of the future more meaningful and pleasant for all."
