Thread Name: Entertaining dementia patients
Subject: RE: Entertaining dementia patients
I have a problem with people and labels but some exprience of dealing with those with the dementia label.

FWIW my advice would be to look back to all the audiences that you have ever performed to and imagine say 10% of those audiences had big labels hung around their necks, saying DEMENTIA PATIENT.

Then perform to your new audience, in exactly the same way.
