Love, Loss, and Laughter - Seeing Dementia Differently
These words are the title of a book by Sociologist and photographer, Cathy Greenblat. More than 100 photographs taken in homes, memory clinics, and day programs around the world, along with commentaries, fill this book. The author recognizes the loss of living with Alzheimer or other dementia - but challenges us to see the love and laughter, as well.
See the thought-provoking quotes from Ms. Greenblat and others below. They are poignant and inspiring - and they are exactly the reason MindStart was created:
