An evaluation of Barbaras story : final report
The initial Barbara’s Story film shows the experience of an older woman (Barbara) through her eyes, as she attends a hospital appointment and is admitted for investigations. The film was shown regularly from September 2012 to April 2013 and attendance was mandatory for all Trust staff: a total of 11,054 clinical and non-clinical staff attended. Barbara’s Story was also embedded into the corporate induction programme for new Trust staff. At each session, Barbara’s Story was shown, along with some group discussion and distribution of Alzheimer’s Society resources, Trust safeguarding and dementia and delirium information, and the Trust values and behaviours framework.
Jolts! : Activities to Wake Up and Engage Your Participants
The life course method compares an individual's long-life and late-life behaviors to gauge one's mental decay. Arguing the life course approach is the best and simplest model for tracking mental development, Lawrence J. Whalley unlocks the mysteries of brain functionality, illuminating the processes that affect the brain during aging, the causes behind these changes, and effective coping strategies. Whalley identifies the genetic factors that determine the pace of aging and the behaviors, starting in childhood, that influence how we age. Through vignettes, charts, and tables, he composes an accessible book for patients, family members, and caretakers struggling to make sense of a complex experience.
