From the Back Cover
For too long, caregiving has been done to people with Alzheimer's disease on the assumption they can no longer do anything for themselves. But increasingly, care providers are recognizing how much can be done with someone with dementia - that activities and interactions can be enjoyable for both care receiver and caregiver. The Positive Interactions Program of Activities for People with Alzheimer's Disease outlines an individualized approach that helps you customize your activities to the existing needs and abilities of a person at any stage in the disease. Featuring 92 step-by-step activities for immediate implementation, this book also provides valuable communication tips that promote positive interactions in each of four categories: creative arts, daily living skills, physical exercise, and sensory experiences. Professionals in a range of settings - activity directors, social workers, home health caregivers, nurses, nursing assistants, and volunteers - as well as family caregivers can use this activity program to enhance the quality of life of someone in their care.
