A leader in transforming aging and elder care, Anne Basting PhD sparks conversation and encourages active listening, allowing all ages to freely share ideas and stories without worrying about getting the details “correct.” She offers up a proven way to foster imaginative and story-based activities among diverse groups and families, especially caregivers of loved ones and those suffering from dementia and Alzheimer’s. Basting’s years of research have shown that these practices stimulate the brain and awaken the imagination, adding wonder and awe not only to the daily lives of those with dementia but to all family members, and provides them with a means of connection and communication. She has spoken or been featured in the PBS documentary Penelope, the TED MED stage and NPR's All Things Considered.
