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

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

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The aim of this book is to offer simple activities which help reinforce the patient's self-esteem while relieving boredom and frustration at the same time. This, for the caregiver, involves being alert to the preserved abilities of the patient, and helping her develop and use the skills she still has. The more involved Alzheimer's patients remain with the world around them, the more resourceful they become at finding ways to keep that world from slipping away. The author has a Master's Degree in Psychology and has worked in nursing homes where she researched therapeutic approaches to aiding victims of memory loss.
