Connecting Through Photos: Using Photography to Engage with Those with Alzheimer’s or Other Forms of Dementia

This podcast will share how photos are beneficial in connecting with and helping loved ones reminisce, particularly those with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia. Join Frances Hall, Founder & Executive Director of ACAPcommunity, and her guest Dorothy Griffin, co-owner of Griswold Home Care for Wilmington, NC and they discuss how to engage with photos as well as what not to do and share some specific examples of ways photos have benefitted those with dementia, their family members, and caregivers.

This episode of The Caregiver Community is made possible by our sponsor, Pace @ Home in Hickory, NC.

While providing care for her mother, Frances S. Hall, Founder, and Executive Director of ACAPcommunity began ACAP as a monthly educational support program for fellow faculty and staff on a small NC university campus, then transitioned the program into a nationally unique, community-impact nonprofit model in 2012. With a master’s degree in higher education administration and a 30+-year career in higher education and nonprofits, Frances continues to lead the growing organization as it continues to provide information, resources support, and community for adult children and others who care for older loved ones.
