Dementia and place: practices, experiences and connections



Ward R, Clark A & Phillipson L (eds.) (2021) Dementia and place: practices, experiences and connections. Bristol: Policy Press. https://policy.bristoluniversitypress.co.uk/dementia-and-place

Giving voice to the lived experiences of people with dementia across the globe, including Australia, Canada, Sweden and the UK, this critical and evidence-based collection engages with the realities of life for people living with dementia at home and within their neighbourhoods. This insightful text addresses the fundamental social aspects of environment, including place attachment, belonging and connectivity. The chapters reveal the potential and expose the challenges for practitioners and researchers as dementia care shifts to a neighbourhood setting. The unique ‘neighbourhood-centred’ perspective provides an innovative guide for policy and practice and calls for a new place-based culture of care and support in the neighbourhood.
