  • Anne Basting, Ph. D.

    Early in her career, Basting noticed a problem: today’s older people—especially those experiencing dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease— often feel isolated and lonely. To help, Basting developed a radical approach that combines theatre and improvisation to connect people using their own creativity and imagination. In this book, she uses stories to inspire us to interact more effectively with those living with dementia. Bring joy and light to the people you love!
