MY CAFÉ, "I Know This", A Life History Documenting Manual
This training manual, MY CAFÉ,”I Know This”, is a comprehensive training guide for professional caregivers to assist a participant, with dementia, in documenting their life, with the aid of a facilitator.
The manual’s purpose is to provide a train-the-trainer-strategy for a variety of professional healthcare settings such as assisted living homes, skilled care facilities, adult day care centers, rehabilitation facilities, and in-home health care and companion providers. It can also benefit a sole proprietor who operates their own caregiver services.
The manual is broken down into three sections.
- Section one introduces the important points for documenting a life history and why it's important for individuals, with dementia. It covers who is a good participant and the roles for both the facilitator and participant. It also covers the process and the forms necessary for information gathering.
- Section two covers preparation, setup, and post-program monitoring and the approach for one-on-one interviewing by the facilitator. There is also a topic for marketing.
- Section three- separate guides for the trainer and the trainee covering goals, objectives, and approaches:(optional purchased separately- not available yet)
