Person-centered dementia care highlighted with Canadian video shoot

Prominent Canadians and their caregiving stories were documented with a filming in Vancouver on April 16 sponsored by Cognitive Dynamics Foundation.  Foundation President Daniel C. Potts, M.D traveled to Vancouver and was joined by producer and filmmaker Judith Murray from Montreal and film crew Carl Alcock and Eric Davies to interview Dr. James Houston and Cathie Borrie.  Dr. Houston, founding principal of Regent College, friend of C. S. Lewis and one of the world’s most respected theologians was interviewed with his wife, Rita in their Vancouver home.  Their experience as care partners, along with Dr. Houston’s revolutionary ideas about the privilege of caregiving and the persistence of personhood despite disbility were highlighted in a lovely interaction.  Cathie Borrie, award-winning author of The Long Hello, discussed her beloved “Mum’s” incredible poetic revelations expressed while in the throes of dementia.  The filming took place upon the breathtaking backdrop of the Vancouver skyline.
