Alzheimer's Disease
Carly R. Hellen

Synopsis

The updated edition of this unique guide provides practical and innovative strategies for care of people with Alzheimer's disease, emphasizing the activities that make up daily living - dressing, tolieting, eating, exercising, communication. The text is written from the viewpoint that activity-focused care promotes the resident's cognitive, physical, psychosocial, and spiritual wellbeing. Hellen's focus is on activities that emphasize the abilities of the residents. Caregivers are urged to do support the patient by participating in daily life tasks and activities "with" the patients rather than doing "to" or "for" them.
