Wow! Bravo to gerontologist, author, and dementia care advocate Dr. Al Power who teamed up with Heather Luth, Dementia Program Coordinator at Schlegel Villages, to produce this superb parody of how the behaviour of people with dementia is mislabelled by those who subscribe to the damaging artificial construct of so-called Behavioural and Psychological Symptoms of Dementia (BPSD).


I’ve provided lots of my own research and evidence proving without a doubt that the artificial construct of BPSD is misleading, counterproductive and just plain wrong. Now, Al and Heather illustrate it simply, humourously, and powerfully with a two-minute tune and a dozen flashcards they put together for Dementia Alliance International’s participation in the 2019 World Rocks Against Dementia event.

Enjoy!
