Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: Can Do Activities for Adults with Alzheimer s Disease is a strength-based approach to Alzheimer s activity programming and communication that focuses on the things individuals can still do rather than on what they have lost. This positive approach to Alzheimer s intervention is based on a model of multiple intelligences (MI) that enables professionals to discover an individual s remaining strengths, abilities, and preferences and to plan activities that will be most successful for that individual. For example, individuals with verbal/linguistic tendencies will respond best to activities focused on language therapy and verbal cues while someone with tactile/kinesthetic tendencies will respond best to activities built around art therapy and physical movement.

This versatile activity book will help you quickly learn to recognize each individual s strengths, initiate meaningful communication, and plan activities that will have the most therapeutic impact. Filled with ready-to-copy strength-based assessments, communication tips and written guides, staff and caregiver hand-outs, a detailed listing of activity ideas and the materials you ll need to carry them out, Can Do Activities for Adults with Alzheimer s Disease contains all the information necessary to implement a strength-based activity program in your care setting immediately.
