Creativity and communication in persons with dementia : a practical guide /

by Killick, John | Craig, Claire.

Publisher: London, U.K. Jessica Kingsley Publishers 2012Description: 212 p.: ill.Summary: Providing people with dementia with opportunities to engage in creative activity can play a crucial role in maintaining and enhancing communication, and in reinforcing personhood and identity. This thoughtful book describes how people with dementia, and the people who work with and care for them, can foster and develop a creative approach, and provides rich and varied ideas for creative activities. The authors explore the concept of creativity - what exactly it is, its particular relevance for people with dementia and how to get into the creative 'flow'. They introduce a range of creative art forms, including poetry and story-telling, collage, drama, music-making, photography, textiles and working with wood and metal, and suggest possibilities for employing them in a range of settings, and with people of all abilities. Consideration is given to the practicalities of facilitating such creative work, including how to organise and run sessions, how to involve people with dementia and their carers, and how to reflect upon the experience. Practice examples are included throughout the book, as well as the comments and observations of people with dementia, and many examples of the artwork and poetry the authors have created with people with dementia over the years. Brimming with ideas, suggestions and helpful guidance, this is an essential resource for all those who work with people with dementia, and an inspiring read for people with dementia and their families.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Older people and the internet : towards a 'system map' of digital exclusion /

by Berry, Richard | International Longevity Centre UK.

Publisher: London, U.K. International Longevity Centre 2011Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: June 2011 Bibliography : p. 15Summary: Older people are significantly less likely to have access to the internet than the general population. According to recent research findings, 79 per cent of households below the state pension age have internet access, while only 37 per cent of households above the state pension age do so. This difference gives rise to the notion of the digital divide, between those who enjoy access to the internet and those who are excluded. There have been a number of attempts to widen access to the internet, among older people and other excluded groups. There are ongoing upgrades of Britain's technological infrastructure, increasing internet capacity throughout the country. There are initiatives to counter the financial barriers to inclusion, by providing subsidised equipment or free internet access, in people's homes or in public places. The state has also supported the provision of training in ICT skills over a number of years.Availability: (1)

Social Support Networks and subjective well-being in Queensland /

by Huang, Xianbi | The Australian Sociological Association.

Publisher: unpub. 2010Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Conference paper presented at The Australian Sociological Association (TASA) Conference. Social Causes, Private Lives (2010 : North Ryde, N.S.W.) Bibliography : p. 13Summary: This paper examines discussion networks (social support networks with whom people can discuss problems), perceived social support and their associations with subjective social well-being in Queensland, Australia. Data from the Living in Queensland survey in 2008 are drawn on for empirical analysis. Main findings include: (1) Queensland people have larger discussion networks than reported in US research (comparable references are absent in previous Australian studies). (2) Respondents‟ sociodemographic characteristics are significantly associated with the size of discussion networks and the purpose of using discussion networks. (3) Role relations are linked to different kinds of social support in different domains. Kin play an extensive role in providing various social supports. (4) The use of discussion networks and the sources of perceived social support have significant associations with life satisfaction but the size of discussion networks does not. These results indicate that in Queensland kin remain the most essential providers of perceived social support and personal networks affect subjective well-being. Although the research is exploratory, it produces new empirical evidence to enrich Australia‟s social network studies. Practically it has policy implications in terms of issues of social cohesion and community engagement.Availability: (1)
