Activity and engagement are vital to our well-being throughout our lives and this continues to be just as true of people living with dementia.
The activities presented in this book have been designed to provide meaningful engagement for residents, while respecting each individual resident's readiness to engage and participate. This approach to person-centred care has proven to be extremely effective: activities such as Namaste Care and Memory Cafes have engaged residents who had previously not responded to interventions, demonstrably showing an increase in their levels of well-being.
Supported by case studies, each chapter will also recommend the best way to implement the ideas discussed in the care home environment and beyond.
