Dementia and I
This Companion contributes to an integral approach of dementia and the person experiencing dementia. It does not close its eyes to the horrors of the disease, but rather provides new perspectives to meet the process of withdrawing of the mind with courage and confidence. We know that the individual I retreats, but it does not disappear. The classification of the withdrawal process in four phases in this book enables the environment to pursue and support the I during the whole process. As a result, the opportunity to deal with unresolved events in life is created in the dementia process.

An inspiring book for the reader who searches for more than one way of looking at dementia. Wonderful stories that penetrate to the core, alternating with an approach to dementia from a developmental perspective. The special attention to spiritual issues at the end of life is meritorious. The book combines the practice of working with the demented person with theoretical concepts.

A special book which describes that despite brain damage, development opportunities continue to exist in dementia, and that the I can manifest itself at distinct moments, as I have also experienced with my husband. Then I saw for a moment the man he once was. For me this confirms the concept of mind over matter.
