Description

A Program for Therapeutic Activity Professionals Designed by Therapeutic Activity Professionals

Activities are a fundamental component of Alzheimer’s and dementia care

The objective of good activity programming is not only to serve the best interests of the participants but also make activities a rewarding experience for both the person with Alzheimer’s and health care professionals. If an activity is to be meaningful, it must have purpose, be voluntary, feel good to the participant and offer the person with Alzheimer’s a reasonable chance of success.

The basis of Activity Based Alzheimer’s Care rests in the belief that activities are the foundation of quality care. Every event, encounter or exchange is an activity. The scope of activities includes every interaction with staff members, volunteers, relatives and other individuals; not only scheduled events provided by activity staff.

Activity Based Alzheimer’s Care: Building a Therapeutic Program was developed by the Alzheimer’s Association along with some of the nation’s leading activity experts in dementia care to support care settings and caregiving staff in building therapeutic programs. Content and objectives are based on information and input from national focus groups, pilot programs, Alzheimer’s Association chapter representatives and other national organizations.

This program is designed specifically for activity professionals who work directly with individuals that have received a dementia diagnosis. If you have a basic understanding of Alzheimer’s disease and other dementing illnesses, and your primary job duties include activity programming design and delivery, this program is definitely for you.
