To all family caregivers and family members, consider the time you spend with a loved one at home that suffers from dementia. AC offers condensed versions of its creative program models to help teach and guide you when using these creative activities. It’s all about having fun.
The workbooks cover:
- basic concepts and benefits about reading & writing poetry, using multi-sensory stimuli, and documenting lifetime histories even for individuals with dementia
- how-to-steps on communicating with the person with dementia
- how-to-steps on facilitating the activity with the individual with dementia
- sample conversations between caregiver and individual throughout the activity
AC creative programs were designed specifically for working with individuals with dementia but can be enjoyed by all family members at all cognitive levels.
AC also encourages family caregivers to follow The Caregivers Cottage Community page for interesting stories, new resources, and ideas.
