Editorial Reviews

"This book brings together so many diverse and established practitioners from the field of arts and dementia care who have been pioneers in terms of the approaches adopted." -- Claire Craig, Senior Lecturer and Researcher, Occupational Therapy, Faculty of Health and Well-being, Sheffield Hallam University, UK "This book provides a refreshing new approach in the area of dementia care."-- Christine Toye, Associate Professor, Faculty of Nursing, Midwifery and Post-graduate Medicine, Edith Cowan University, Australia   "What is creativity? Photographer Dewitt Jones (1999) defines it as “a moment—a moment where we look at the ordinary, but see the extraordinary.” This simple definition describes what is so important about this book." -- G. Allen Power, MD, FACP, Rochester, NY, USA (extract from the Foreword)
