Having to stay at home for most of the time during lockdown can be difficult at times, especially if you are looking after someone with dementia or other cognitive problems who may not understand the reasons why they can’t go out to meet their friends and family or have them to visit.
Life story work can be enjoyed by carer and cared for together and lockdown gives a great opportunity to give it a try!
Life Story Network has produced some materials with practical suggestions about how to get started. As one of our carers says: “Our advice is – don’t delay and make a start on your own”.
The materials are available as free PDF document. Please use the following link to view and download the document:
