Special Knowledge and Stories About Dementia— David Denborough

$9.00

KAGE, in conjunction with Alzheimer’s Australia Vic, has recently developed a theatrical production in relation to Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. The show is called Sundowner. The production has been developed through a series of community forums in which collective narrative practices were used to elicit, richly describe, and document special knowledge and stories about dementia. This paper includes insider-knowledge about the experience of dementia and the experience of caring for people with dementia in the hope that this will be of assistance to others.
