Spaghetti Maze

Our proposed new arts project Spaghetti Maze, is beginning to taking shape. Spaghetti Maze will be a 'how to' publication, that documents examples of our art and poetry workshops, with Dementia sufferers, their carers and specialist staff.

I'm always on the look out for material that gives me a better understanding of the subject of Dementia, and wanted to share an wonderful and deeply moving account of living with Alzheimer's I just heard on the radio. Dale Griffin was drummer with Mott The Hoople and went on to become a successful music producer, he describes how Alzheimer's has changed his life in an interview on Radio 4s Saturday Live Also in the program TV presenter Fiona Philips had a frank and informative discussion about her parents with Dementia, and the impact the disease has on all their lives. Her book Before I Forget is published by Preface.
