Show Summary Details


This chapter examines the third ‘moment’, emphasizing the strengths of this approach but also drawing attention to its limitations. It argues that the emergence of a fourth moment has now begun — that of a more dynamic, contextualised account of the dementia experience. It concludes by outlining a multidimensional conceptual framework for considering dementia in a way that explicitly draws in a more socio-political perspective.

Keywords: third moment; fourth moment; dementia; conceptual framework; socio-political perspective
