"Their Capacity to Delight": Knowing Persons with Dementia through Haiku
Alzheimer's disease--Social aspects
Haiku--theses and dissertations
Poetry and music have both been shown to help build bridges to the minds of those with dementia. This thesis, based on sessions spent by the author, a haiku poet, with persons with dementia, explores the question whether using haiku to nurture the capacities of those with dementia might help to bring hope into a dismal picture.
