Dementia care: Louise's story

Updated Friday 16th January 2015

Is safety more important than freedom? Should care staff share mealtimes with the residents? Listen to the different perspectives on dementia care in Louise's story and have your say.

This feature includes a selection of audio scenes outlining Louise's experiences with dementia and the care she received as a result. You will hear a range of audio diaries, dramatic scenes and confessional interviews from Louise, her daughter and the professionals working in health and social care.

You can also make your way to the dementia care discussion forum and have your say on a number of issues that arise in Louise's story and in real life based on your experiences. Here you'll also be able to access a variety of articles taken from course material at The Open Univeristy to help you make an informed decision.
