Lieferbar innert 2 Wochen
BeschreibungQuality of life issues, important for all, are particularly important for those who have the least control over their environment - individuals with advanced dementia. Often times, these individuals are unable to verbalize their frustrations and may exhibit agitation and other problem behaviors. Where traditional approaches may fail, this book provides new and proven techniques to enhance the lives of those individuals afflicted with advanced dementia. Instead of focusing on decreasing the problem behaviors, Enhancing the Quality of Life in Advanced Dementia focuses on alternative methods of increasing the positive behaviors.
