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’.
