Heart Healing from Loss

14-02-2022 • 38 mins

Welcome back to the Heart Healing from Loss podcast!

In this episode, Wendy interviews three healthcare pros from the Creative Dementia Collective.

People living with dementia, their families, friends, care sharers, and caregivers face a great many challenges. The prospect of ensuring everyone touched by dementia receives the care they need can be... baffling.

Not to mention the feelings.

Each person touched by dementia experiences a radically personal and unique life event.

One that has never been desired.

How do you ensure these people have good quality of life, with appropriate activity, love, and respect, as well as care - and that the stigma surrounding dementia is finally resigned to the past?

The Creative Dementia Collective of Kaylee Allen, Erin Staadecker, Jael Weinberg, and super pup Rosie is on a mission to do all of the above, using art and music, pet and talk therapies, all customized for the individual living with dementia.
