Igniting the Spark of Life in people with dementia

Jesca’s Story – In her own words

Through the sponsorship, which I received from Dementia Foundation for Spark of Life,  to attend the Spark of Life Master Leadership Program, I  acquire the knowledge and skills to enrich the lives of people with dementia.

The Spark of Life Philosophy provides care to people with dementia but cuts across and benefit learners with special needs education, which I have seen working very well. During the training, my love was ignited to unconditional love, which has boosted confidence and low self-esteem in people with dementia and other neurological disorders.

To have love and to have unconditional love are different things, unconditional love looks behind any special need and that is what Spark of Life Philosophy inspires in Master Practitioners. Once a practitioner has the enthusiasm of passing on unconditional love to people with dementia, it enhances their longevity since such care has no harm to one’s health.

Our vision and energies are on starting Spark of Life Sunshine Clubs in Uganda. If it wasn’t Spark of life sponsorship to train us in dementia Care, Uganda wouldn’t have seen this light.  I therefore call upon funders who wish to fund Master Practitioners through the Dementia Foundation for Spark of Life to donate willingly. If many Master Practitioners have  a chance to attend this education, we shall be able to provide care to the ageing population with dementia as this philosophy caters for both people with dementia in poor and rich families.
