In today's episode we’re exploring a radically different approach to dementia care which can help people remain in their own homes for longer.

Judy Cornish is the creator of the DAWN method - and she joins us for a fun and fascinating conversation about how she came into dementia care with no prior experience and developed a way to embrace the strengths and avoid weaknesses of people living with dementia.

Judy’s model leverages the highly developed intuitive skills of people living with dementia and encourage carers and families to communicate in ways that don’t depend on the often-diminishing rational skills, which she explains in quite a bit more detail throughout the episode.

If you want to learn more about Judy’s wonderful work after this interview which I think you will, she has two books available online The Dementia Handbook and Dementia with Dignity that you can check out.

As always you can hear Daniella and Maurie’s take and thoughts about these ideas in their show Who Cares? which is released every Friday.
