Living with Alzheimer's Disease and Related Dementias A Manual of Resources, References and Information SECOND EDITION
Living with Alzheimer's Disease and Related Dementias provides answers to complex questions as caregivers struggle to understand behaviour and provide the best care possible to those with this illness. As the number of persons being diagnosed with dementia continues to rise, there is a growing need for skilled assessment, careful planning and linking with supports.

This revised edition is a practical resource with contributions from several experienced authors. It aims to increase our appreciation of the changes associated with dementia and provide a wide range of resources to help health professionals and informal caregivers.

Major topic areas include Understanding the Illness, The Occupational Therapy Role and Supporting the Caregiver. There is focused attention on theory and assessment with emphasis on functional performance. Special topics covered include driving and dementia, falls and the use of restraints, highlights of specific approaches to dementia programming and an in-depth examination of ethics and dementia care.

Action Over Inertia

Action Over Inertia introduces readers to an occupational time-use intervention that aims to re-engage community dwelling individuals with serious mental illness with meaningful activity, positively influencing levels of occupational balance and engagement.

Spirituality and Occupational Therapy 2nd Edition

This book invites readers to be intentional in their use of spirituality, and to be explicit about how they are using terms, measures, interventions and outcomes. It suggests a number of conceptual and practical approaches. It acknowledges the cultural location of spirituality, attempting to ensure at all times that language and concepts are inclusive and welcoming.
