Summary
"'A dignified life', revised and expanded, offers hope and help with a proven approach. Ten years ago, the first edition of 'A dignified life' changed the way the caregiving community approached Alzheimer's disease by showing caregivers how to act as a Best Friend to the person, finding positive ways to interact even as mental abilities declined. Firmly grounded in the latest knowledge about the progression and treatment of dementia, this expanded edition offers a wealth of immediately usable tips and new problem-solving advice. It incorporates practical ideas for therapeutic activities including the latest brain-fitness exercises [to] stimulate the brain while adding structure, meaning, and context to daily routines."--Provided by publisher
