Playfulness and Dementia
(2013, Jessica Kingsley)
"This book is full of ways to connect people through fun. There is nothing disrespectful or silly about the words in this book. It is full of compassion and honesty. It will supply you with a springboard to joy."
Professor Dawn Brooker, Director of the Association for Dementia Studies, University of Worcester.
"Killick's challenge to us in Playfulness and Dementia is simple and powerful - what is wrong with having a good time when you're living with dementia? His many-faceted story is thoroughly convincing - that play, playfulness and laughter are integral to creativity in dementia, to people's well-being and ultimately to their human right to experience joy."
John Zeisel, PhD, founder of the I'm Still Here Foundation and author of I'm Still Here: A New Philosophy of Alzheimer's Care
