Adaptive yoga is a gentle form of yoga that is practiced sitting on a chair, or standing using a chair for support and balance. This style of yoga is a great practise for everyone, as it deepens flexibility and strengthens personal body awareness. With the aid of a chair, the participant can learn many kinds of yoga postures, breathing techniques, meditation, and ways of relaxation, often creating greater physical and mental fitness. These classes are structured so that both people with no familiarity to yoga as well as people versed in the yogic tradition can participate. Instructor may charge.

Advances in technology have resulted in very many proposed ‘solutions’ to the ‘problems’ of dementia: tracking and tagging to corral the problem of ‘wandering’; surveillance systems to address safety issues; assistive technologies to support social engagement, sustain or support memory, decision-making and advance planning. Such advances bring with them ethical considerations – of privacy, paternalism, choice, and freedom of movement; and questions of values. While I have no answers to the questions raised, I will raise some of the issue in order to generate a conversation.
Dr Clive Baldwin, Canada Research Chair in Narrative Studies and Professor of Social Work at St Thomas University will illustrate these differences and draw out the implications of differing perspectives for the care of people living with dementia. Prior to coming to Canada, Dr Baldwin, was Senior Lecturer in Dementia Studies at the University of Bradford, and conducted postdoctoral research into the ethical issues faced by family carers of relatives with dementia. He continues to write about ethics, dementia, and personhood.
