This essential resource teaches professional anf  fanily caregivers how to improve the well-being  and raise the quality of life for people with  Alzheimer's disease. For so many victims of Alzheimer's  disease, failure fills their days. Now caregivers  of Alzheimer's patients can turn to this resource  for ideas and advice for safe, reassuring  activities to help the patient feel capable and involved  with everyday life. Adapted to suit the needs and  capacities of the person with memory loss, the  activities are designed to raise self-esteem, relieve  boredom, reduce feelings of isolation, develop and  use remaining skills, promote involvement with  reality, and emphasize abilities that remain. From  making scrapbooks to holding sing-alongs, from  baking to dusting, each activity is described by  clearly illustrated instructions and is supplemented  with appendices on supplies and further help.  Failure-Free Activites For The Alzheimer's  Patient is for family members, nurse's aides,  companions, or the occasional  visitor.

"No caregiver should be without this book,"  according to the Vancouver Alzheimer's Society.
