Brindabilla clients tell their stories

During 2014 an exciting project in life writing and dementia care was run at Baptcare’s Brindabilla Day Centre. The aim of the project was to assist those with memory difficulties to tell their stories. The project involved collaboration between Paula Bain, Diversional Therapist in the Eastern Metro Community Packages team and Emeritus Professor of English, Richard Freadman, a life writing scholar and autobiographer. Further work has occurred on this project during 2015 with work being undertaken on a joint journal article by Paula Bain and Richard Freadman being submitted for an international journal of Life Writing.
