Highlights from today's episode include:
So because of my own naivety and the enthusiasm, I became literally the first teacher in the county, or that may be in parts of Britain actually, to actually introduce sign language. And I remember when I went to my interview, with the headteacher, it's an oral-only school so all the teachers would work with producing speech. So in my interview, very naive, the first job I ever had, I sort of said to the headteacher, "Look, can I sign with the children?" as she went, "No, no Mrs. Brown children don't sign."
But yes you were asking me where we originally started, it has to do with my desire to help people communicate. And that continued on the thread even to now where I work with contented dementia, and also what I call connection therapy to work with people with dementia and also healing. Communication literally has and interpreting and helping people communicate has worked right in my mind as far as the meaning now.
It's about helping them because as time goes on, the way that it works with dementia is that we, the person with dementia is literally taking photographs if you like almost what is happening. It's like the camera gets shut. And so they don't actually record that moment. It's not that they forgotten it, they never recorded it in the first place. So you can't get angry with the machine and if they haven't recorded that memory. But one of the other things that we find with dementia is that although they may not remember the details of things that have happened more recently, you know who their names, places, etc. They do, people with dementia do hold on to the emotions.
