As a high school photography teacher one of our favorite digital assignments was for the students to explore their family history through layers of meaning and images and create a final montage or photo story in book form to share with their family.

Peggy commented on My Plea as One in Early Stage Dementia

So true. That had been my experience and insight in taking care of my mother. Lighten up! Especially since the emotions are still perceived on another level and picked up by those with dementia. If some one is annoyed or too serious, the person picks up on that and will respond accordingly. Best to be creative and playful as we get through the day!

Peggy commented on "How we live and die" photo book

Agree. I started an illustrated caregivers book that is filled with pictures and images that help evoke creativity around the process.Something light hearted and inspirational as well as being practical. Of course the book is sitting unfinished. Might be a good collaborative project.

Peggy commented on Consider the end-of-life experience for pets

I think home dying for animals provides a model and experience for people that might make home dying a possibility for themselves.
