Shownotes

A wonderful episode with an amazing human being and dementia specialist, Daniel C. Potts, MD, FAAN, neurologist, Tuscaloosa VA Medical Center and the University of Alabama, Founder and President of Cognitive Dynamics Foundation.

Dr. Potts explores the Pillars of Personhood: learning to honor, validate, and build relationships around the innate personhood of those who are living with dementia.

He shares with us about his own father, Lester, and his watercolor art, and how his practice and interactions with his patients and their families have changed because of his care partnership with this father.

We explore the importance of art and creativity in dementia care and touch on Dr. Pott's personal experience with faith, spirituality and dementia care.
