Call or email today to get your free copy!

By Lynn Wilson, Founder of The CareGiver Partnership

This month, we are offering a free copy of “Activities 101 for the Family Caregiver” — a basic guide to help the family caregiver of someone with dementia, Parkinson’s or other cognitive difficulties — to anyone who calls or e-mails The CareGiver Partnership.

“Activities 101 for the Family Caregiver” is a guide based on the training and approaches of long-term care activity professionals. This educational resource is packed with information family caregivers can use to improve the lives of those with dementia, such as:
  • Strategies for effective engagement and communication
  • How those with dementia can benefit from therapeutic activities
  • Best practices for planning and executing activities
  • How to motivate your loved one for success
The book was developed by R.O.S. Therapy Systems, an organization dedicated to improving quality of life through entertainment and activities. It offers unique products that adults can use and training classes for family caregivers, agency caregivers and long-term care staff.

Read what Dr. Janice I. Wassel, associate professor and past president of Southern Gerontological Society, has to say about “Activities 101 for the Family Caregiver”:

“Each day, caregivers face challenges of how to provide excellent and meaningful care. Written for time-constrained families and caregivers, this book provides excellent examples of how to improve a care recipient’s daily life with techniques that are simple and quick to initiate. But also importantly, it provides a reminder that older adults remain valuable individuals who are to be treated with care, respect, good communication, and calmness regardless of functional ability. As a gerontologist and graduate program in gerontology director for over 12 years, these characteristics of older adults are ones we emphasize in our curriculum, and may be achieved through activities such as those promoted in ‘Activities 101 for the Family Caregiver.’”
