‘Love is like a butterfly: occupying people living with a dementia in care homes.’ David Sheard, Director of Dementia Care Matters describes The Butterfly Approach™
Cathrina is also implementing the Butterfly Approach (Dementia Care Matters), Butterflies are colourful, can flit around a room or be still, can change the moment and can brighten a second in someone’s life – being person centred is similar. In a busy day being person centred is knowing how to touch peoples lives. All of us can live in the moment; all of us can change someone’s day through small things. (Sheard 2007).
