This book was a phenomenal read, I recently picked it up so i would know what i could do to stimulate my alzheimer clients. I am a recreational therapist at a assisted living facility, and the recommendations in this book worked like a charm. I loved it, I carry it with me at work. I hope others will find this book as enlightening as i did.

Thank you,
Enlightened

Amira C. Tame is truely an amazing healer, and her book illustrates a brilliant style and a series of techniques that have changed the lives of many. I had the pleasure to attend a few of her lectures that focused on theraputic activites and I was amazed at her enthusiasm, her extended research, and especially her creativity. Her activities are extremly cleaver, very appropriate, fun, but most importantly they are EFFECTIVE. I conversed with about half a dozen of nurses and caregivers in that lecture hall that shared with me stories of dramatic improvement and success. Her activities are multidimentional, improving not only stimulations of the brain, and memory, but also dissolving depression, increasing motivation, and even decreasing arthritis pain. Amira's C. Tame's book is extremly easy to follow, she even provides the reader with a chart in order to organize, and keep track of the patients records. I give Amira C. Tame FIVE STARS for creativity, extended research, organized format, and passion.

Format: Paperback
My name is Esther and I had permission to return from the heaven above, to present the true story about this book, which was written about me. This book was composed of my thoughts, my words, my images and the flagrant usage of my pictures and letters, which I have never consented for the author's use to publish. This author in her book professes to take credit for her autistic caregiving advise to other's from my disease. Her relationshoip with me was meaningless, for I spent very little time with her while I was suffering from my condition and it was due to my daughter's fervent daily companionship for 5yrs. at the nursing home's, that kept me alive during my 95th birthday, until I died. It's unfair when one writes about your life's story when you are dead and you are unable to refute their creditability. But I had to aware the publisher of this travesty and hopefully I could return to heaven in peace.
Esther
