Dr. Basting shares stories of how shifting away from the expectation of memory toward the freedom of imagination opens expression and mean-ingful relationship with people with dementia, their care partners, and care systems themselves. Infusing creativity into care brings hope and meaning back within reach– which is crucial for quality of life for both people living with dementia and for their care partners.
