Live and Laugh with Dementia
shows us how we can tailor activities to suit the needs and abilities of dementia patients who are unable to initiate activities themselves, and help them to:
- Maintain their relationships with others
- Maintain their self-identity
- Slow the decline of mental function by providing physical and mental stimulation
- Stave off boredom
- Experience happiness and pleasure.
Ideal for both family and professional carers, not only does it contain suggestions for activities and how to tailor them, but it also covers a host of ideas that will empower family and friends to re-engage with those living with dementia, allowing them to build new relationships, spread the load
of care and add richness to their lives as well as meaning to their own.
This invaluable book also contains tips for people with mild dementia in order to empower them to stay active and keep control of their lives as much as possible.
