The Creative Care Imagination Kit with Dr. Anne Basting

8/11/2021 10:30:00 AM

My guest is Anne Basting, PhD, who is a leader in transforming aging and elder care. I have her on this podcast to talk about her Creative Care Imagination Kit.

Based on Dr. Basting’s twenty-five years of research, this “imagination kit” makes it easy for families, friends, and caregivers to make meaningful connections with elders and others dealing with physical, cognitive, or emotional challenges, including memory loss.

The Creative Care Imagination Kit sparks conversation and encourages active listening, allowing all ages to freely share ideas and stories without worrying about getting the details “correct.”

Dr. Basting’s years of research have shown that these practices stimulate the brain and awaken the imagination, adding wonder and awe not only to the daily lives of those with dementia but to all family members, and provides them with a means of connection and communication.
