Loving : The essence of being a butterfly in dementia care

By Sally Knocker
 
This book is the seventh in Dementia Care Matters’ Feelings Matter Most series which focuses on changing
cultures in dementia care homes. Loving, the essence of being a butterfly offers a practical approach on how to increase connections with people living with a dementia. The book identifies what it takes to ensure the essence of living is at the heart of a care home. The metaphor of a ‘Butterfly’ is used to describe the way in which people can connect in a variety of ways throughout the day, bringing colour and being loving to ‘care’. Each essence of being a butterfly in dementia care is explained and includes a wide range of simple but effective ideas for transforming a care home.
