Using Life Story Work with People who have dementia

We are a group comprising of: people with dementia, family carers, care workers and academics all interested in promoting the use of Life Story Work with people who have dementia.

We came together through a shared interest in Life Story Work from a range of experiences that include:

  • Undertaking research into the use of Life Story Work
  • Through experience of using Life Story Work and seeing its potential
  • Through using Life Story Work as a carer or a person with dementia
  • Out of an interest in finding out more about Life Story Work

 The aims of this website and our work include:

  • Getting Life Story Work used with people who have dementia
  • Sharing experiences of using life story work, its benefits and its dilemmas
  • Recommending good practice when using Life Story Work
  • As a forum for learning from one another

 We hope you find this site both an inspiration and a helpful resource.
