My recent trips to Australia continue to bear fruit by creating new projects that fulfill the mission of "seeing dementia differently."
I've included an article below--Changing the Image of Care--which was published in the June/July 2014 issue of the Australian Journal of Dementia Care. Written by Fiona Calvert, the article tells my story and talks about my mission of changing the way dementia is seen, but also describes the important work being done by Starrett Lodge in Australia, and how they are changing the image of care and providing a stimulating and loving environment for their residents.

Here is the short film Finding the Why: Enabling Active Participating in Life in Aged Care, which is referenced in the article. Produced by filmmaker Corinne Maunder, who created the film Seeing Dementia Differently, this video also includes many of my photos.
