Healing Together Podcast
May 19, 2020
This conversation on the Healing Together Podcast with Anne Basting covers her ground-breaking approach to engaging with patients in the midst of dementia and cognitive decline - a new, generative, and playful way of imagining elder care. Basting's work has challenged conventional wisdom and resulted in extraordinary changes for patients and caregivers alike.
They discuss storytelling and our human need for narrative, relationships and the value of living in the present moment, and what is driving Anne's personal sense urgency at this moment. She opens up about her own mom’s experience with dementia, shares stories of infusing creativity and joy into care-giving, and explains what she calls “beautiful questions.”
