All of us live in a complex world of stories that define who we are. But what happens when we can no longer tell our own story? John Swinton challenges standard accounts of dementia and offers a new story that is not determined by issues of loss or tragedy.
John Swinton holds the chair in practical theology and pastoral care at the University of Aberdeen. He is also an honorary professor at Aberdeen’s Centre for Advanced Studies in Nursing. He previously worked as a registered nurse and community mental health chaplain.
