Building a life story can be an important aid for family when one of their loved one’s has onset dementia.

The process provides an opportunity to share and celebrate, to acknowledge and build on relationships. It’s a time for togetherness and belonging. Therapeutic Life Story can honour this within a therapeutic alliance that helps take dementia to the outside of the individual as she or he reflects positively on a life lived to the full.
