“There is no greater power on this earth than story.” – Libba Bray
Stories in Mind, a program facilitated by Tony Dingman, brings the magic of storytelling to life and the power of connection to elders living with dementia and Alzheimer’s at Nazareth Home.
Stories in Mind is a perfect example of our person-centered approach to care. Creative storytelling allows us to connect with each elder and provide an enjoyable and empowering moment. Elders can express themselves without any pressure or expectation. The activity doesn’t require memory; therefore the focus is on them being engaged, active and present.
Connecting with others is at the core of being human, and that doesn’t change when a person has dementia or Alzheimer’s. With Stories in Mind, we connect, instill hope, spark imagination and make the best of each moment.
