||A Way of Life
Developing an Exemplary Alzheimer's Disease and Dementia Program
By Susan Gilster, Ph.D.
Based on the 20-year experience of the visionary Alois Alzheimer Center, this guidebook describes how to envision, develop, and maintain a successful Alzheimer’s care program. Grounded in a service-oriented leadership model, A Way of Life provides a comprehensive discussion of the most important elements of an effective program, including the vision, environment, staff preparation and support, family involvement, and behavioral interventions. True stories throughout the text illustrate differences found in facilities that follow the author’s philosophy and those that do not. Administrators, managers, and other health care leaders will gain valuable insight and knowledge for developing new Alzheimer’s facilities or transforming existing ones.
