Challenging a dehumanising approach to dementia
Lindsey Collins is a Dementia Care Practice Development Consultant at the University of Bradford.
In her TedX talk, Lindsey shares her personal and professional experiences of people with dementia, and encourages viewers to stop seeing the dementia, and see the person first. This talk was delivered at TedX Maplewood, New Jersey on 29 February 2020.
We are one of the UK’s leading centres for psychosocial research into living with, and caring for, people with dementia and their families.
We offer a range of online postgraduate courses aimed at dementia care practitioners. These are open to both UK and international students.
