What do you see when you look at the face of your loved one who suffers from a form of dementia? What does your partner, parent or friend see when looking at the world from her or his dementia?

A few weeks ago, my wife and I visited a nursing home for the elderly in a town near where we live. We had an inspiring meeting with the coordinator of the day time spending for the residents. Among other things, she told us that almost all residents suffer from dementia and / or Parkinson’s disease.

Her story, combined with seeing the residents during our walk around, reminded me of a description of the 4 phases of dementia that I read on the internet a long time ago: ‘The 4 phases of the “I experience” in the dementia disease‘.

Today I dedicate my four-part series / quadriptych ‘Four’ to everyone who has to deal with dementia: the affected person, family and friends, practitioners and caregivers in residential communities and nursing homes.

Read the entire article and see the 4 photos on this new project page:
