Switzerland - Living library «Let’s talk about dementia»

We organised a living library on the topic of dementia. By providing a framework for conversation about issues on dementia we helped spreading knowledge and overcoming prejudices. Around 30 people took part in the discussions. Visitors were able to borrow one of the interesting "living" books and ask questions about their experiences in dealing with dementia. One “book” talked about his experience as a music therapist working together with people with dementia. Another book gave an insight into everyday nursing care in the field of dementia. Intensive and stimulating conversations were held.
