Failure-Free Activities for the Alzheimer Patient:
A Guidebook for Caregivers

Carmel B. Sheridan


This essential resource teaches professional and family caregivers how to improve the well-being and raise the quality of life for people with Alzheimer's disease. For so many victims of Alzheimer's disease, failure fills their days. Now caregivers of Alzheimer's patients can turn to this resource for ideas and advice for safe, reassuring activities to help the patient feel capable and involved with everyday life. Adapted to suit the needs and capacities of the person with memory loss, the activities are designed to raise self-esteem, relieve boredom, reduce feelings of isolation, develop and use remaining skills, promote involvement with reality, and emphasize abilities that remain. From making scrapbooks to holding sing-alongs, from baking to dusting, each activity is described by clearly illustrated instructions and is supplemented with appendices on supplies and further help. Failure-Free Activites For The Alzheimer's Patient is for family members, nurse's aides, companions, or the occasional visitor.
