Whether you’re designing from the ground up or trying to improve the services of an existing facility, here is a cornucopia of techniques to make your care program more dementia-friendly. Margaret P. Calkins spearheads this 4-volume resource, which describes how to integrate the physical environment, staff care practices, and residents’ needs into a complementary, holistic approach to dementia care.
Each volume provides easy-to-implement ideas for making each facility’s care culture more supportive of individual residents.
