“At last a book for those hungry for creative activity ideas for people living with dementia and particularly those with advanced dementia! It is practical, inspiring and has a good mix of simple everyday things to do as well as more structured arts-based activities.”
– Sylvie Silver and Sally Knocker, National Association of Providers of Activities for Older People.
Chocolate Rain is for those working in residential care, day care, and at home who seek creative solutions to improving the wellbeing of people living with dementia. It is suitable for those with limited experience, including family members, because the suggestions are practical and focus on what can be achieved; and for more experienced practitioners by offering opportunities to communicate more imaginatively and effectively. Each of these ideas has been successfully applied across a full range of dementia care situations
Sarah Zoutewelle-Morris has a lifetime’s experience in the visual arts and for the past 15 years has applied these skills to her work as an artist in health care.
This book, written from an artist’s perspective, is a collection of insights gained and practical tools developed during the course of that work.
