In 2012 the Social Policy Research Unit at the University of York launched
the first study of its kind to investigate life story work from first principles.
We asked:
 What is life story work?
 What is considered to be good practice in life story work in
dementia care?
 How do service providers and family carers use life story work?
 Can life story work be evaluated in real world care settings?
 What are the costs of doing life story work as part of everyday care?
