A seminar in the Centre for Dementia 2017 Seminar Series by Dr Fiona Marshall of The University of Nottingham. From 11.30am to 12.30pm.

This presentation builds on the current Scaling the Peaks Rural Dementia Study by exploring liminality from the fields of human geography, sociology and medicine which can help our understanding of the impact of place and space among those living and working in rural communities. The presentation provides food for thought in the ways in which we may conceptualize dementia and how dominant paradigms may be less relevant for rural dwellers living with dementia. Drawing on study observations, interviews and identification of differing models of community care, this presentation aims to challenge the current cultures of care as urban centric and discusses why these cultures may be difficult to assimilate into rural cultures of being.
