Detailed Description
Use the ingenious communication and memory aids featured in this practical guide to significantly improve the ability of people with dementia and related memory impairments to stay connected, engaged, and functioning at their optimal level of independence. Presenting a wide array of evidence-based examples, Memory and Communication Aids for People with Dementia contains all the information needed to develop personalized supports for any individual and every circumstance.

From low-tech options such as memory wallets, memo boards, planners, and reminder cards to commercial products available through new electronic technologies, these simple but powerful tools help to provide conversation prompts, answers to common questions, and reminders for daily living. Confusion, anxiety, frustration, and challenging behaviors melt away when individuals are able to

  • communicate their needs and preferences to caregivers
  • remember important names, places, and appointments
  • complete tasks unassisted
  • engage in meaningful conversations and social interactions
  • recall past events and achievements
  • preserve their dignity and identity

    Full-color illustrations and simple instructions for creating various memory and communication tools are included. Abundant examples of useful content and formats are supplemented by more than 30 downloadable guides and templates to use or customize.

    Speech-language pathologists, occupational and physical therapists, activity directors, direct care staff, and family members interacting with adults with memory impairments will welcome this practical and life-enhancing resource.
