Example text

The point of contrasting citizenship with personhood in this way is not to polarise debate within the field of dementia studies, or to imply that citizenship is somehow a superior concept to personhood.

As Fox (1995) notes, a personhood lens does not have the language for exploring the possibility that ‘caring’ might sometimes have more to do with power and control than with values of trust and giving, nor is this lens really able to describe relationships in the context of wider social divisions. Baldwin and Capstick (2007) note that by treating dementia care organisations as though they are effectively ‘hermeneutically sealed institutions separate from the rest of the social world and its economic agendas and priorities’, the potential for change within the organisational level may be significantly overestimated (p 273).

28 THREE The meaning and value of social citizenship Introduction In the previous chapter the argument was made for a more contextualised, sociopolitical understanding of dementia. The concept of citizenship is proving increasingly popular among people with early dementia, service providers, professional care workers, voluntary organisations and academics alike, and is often used alongside personhood to promote the rights of people with dementia. However, it is generally used uncritically and with little explanation or clarification as to what it actually means in relation to people with dementia, especially individuals with very severe dementia.
