How to meaningfully reconnect with those who have dementia | Anne Basting

By incorporating art and creativity into elder care settings, gerontologist Anne Basting helps families reconnect with loved ones who have dementia.

In this moving talk, she shares how asking "beautiful questions" -- questions that don't have a right or wrong answer -- opens up a shared path of discovery, imagination and wonder.

"If we can infuse creativity into care, caregivers can invite a partner into meaning-making," Basting says.

"In that moment, care, which is so often associated with loss, can become generative."
