Developing an Exemplary Alzheimer's Disease and Dementia Program
By Susan Gilster, Ph.D.
"Dr. Gilster has once again authored an excellent, valuable book. In describing a service-oriented model of care that focuses on the population served, the text presents practical, how-to-do-it information while reinforcing an overall philosophy of care … I recommend this text to long-term care providers and consumers alike."
John R. Pratt, FACHE, Director of Health Administration Programs at Saint Joseph’s College of Maine and Author, Long-Term Care: Managing Across the Continuum
"Susan Gilster’s book draws from over two decades of experience living and breathing Alzheimer’s cases as the director of one of the nation’s innovative facilities. The case examples, which reflect this experience, are superb."
Philip D. Sloane, M.D., M.P.H., Elizabeth and Oscar Goodwin Distinguished Professor, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
"Dr. Gilster’s approach is based on the application of the best research to develop practical solutions for care of adults with Alzheimer’s disease and related disorders. The results of her work serve as a critical resource for families and professionals."
