The indispensable quality of really good dementia care simply must involve wanting to be loving in our approach towards people.” – David Sheard.
Forget about the disease. Look at the person as if there is no disease first and ask yourself , what is going on for that person? What might they be experiencing and feeling as any person would? Then look at how the disease might complicate that experience for the person. That is when you can truly help. When you are seeing the person before the disease, you are then considering who they are first and their experience of their life as it is for them now in that moment.” – Sarah Bucklar.
