We are the stories we tell about ourselves. Stories make us who we are, help us understand the world and connect with one another. This is no different for people with memory or communication difficulties.
For people with communication difficulties, stories of their life may be held together by a fragile web, often narrated by other people and sometimes lost when situations change. I can work with you to develop creative ways to enable people to share their stories, whatever their communication abilities.
I am interested in supporting people with dementia to document their stories and the impact personal stories can have on their interactions and care.
Contact me to talk about projects or workshops in capturing and using personal stories.
I worked with Peter to record his memories of an important time in his life: living and working in Antarctica. Hear his story below.
