Mental stimulation has been found to offer demonstrable benefits for people with Alxheimer disease or other forms of dementia or memory impairment. Through the Seasons helps family members and caregivers engage memory-challenged adults in simple, enjoyable activities that provide stimulation and enhance communication.
Fun and easy to use, this large-format colour picture book is divided into themes representing the four seasons. Each section describes several multisensory experiences--such as picking apples to raking leaves--along with related topics for discussions and activities to elicit memories and encourage new positive associations.
Designed by nationally recongnized experts in gerontology, geriatrics, and memory enhancement, this workbook provides a scientifically sound, well-developed program that will help family caregivers and professionals maintain and enhance relationships with the persons in their care.
