You’ve seen some of the videos of me developing a mind map. Watch them again.

Sit down at a table with your notebook computer or an iPad. Let a person with dementia watch you, ask questions, provide information. Try to incorporate some of their questions or information into a SIMPLE map.

Make sure your map is bright and you use pictures. You might even paste a picture of the person you are demonstrating the method to into the map. Keep the mind map SIMPLE and BRIEF

If possible, print the map in color and give it to your (new) mind mapping buddy.

Here are a few topics that you could use. You can think of many others for specific individuals.

    I would like to thank you for sharing your lived experience. My hope is that these words and projects can become valuable resources for change in relationships, treatment, and policies.
    Much thanks,

    I like it; simple, brief, effective without needing analysis. 😀
