Balancing practical know-how with medical theory, this program examines the needs of patients with dementia and explores a range of fulfilling activities that foster self-worth and belonging. After an insightful look at dementia and its symptoms, the video illustrates both one-on-one and group activities and identifies which recreational pursuits are best suited to a particular level of dementia. A well-equipped nursing home in Australia serves as a working model for developing activities programs, rounding out this excellent resource for aged care and dementia care training.
