The author understands caregiver challenges from firsthand experience caring for her father in her home. "When Alzheimer's disease began to take its toll on my father, it was difficult to find things that he could do and enjoy. Over many months, I searched through books and catalogs, researched online, talked with professional and family caregivers, and developed my own ideas, compiling lists of activities and resources. By trial and error, I discovered which activities succeeded and which did not. Nothing can stop AD's relentless progression, but activities definitely improved the quality of our life and may help slow mental deterioration." B. J. FitzRay graduated from the University of California at Berkeley and has enjoyed a diverse career as a hospital patient representative and risk manager, newspaper columnist, and as a business entrepreneur. The mother of four adult children, B.J. lives with her husband in northern California.

Editorial Reviews

Anne Muller
An excellent resource for caregivers and activities professionals. I look forward to incorporating these activities into our hospital's Transitional Care Center's activities program.
Cynthia Thomas
The value of such an excellent resource cannot be overstated. It is easy to read, informative, and overflowing with activities. The research has been done for you. ... a must read for anyone working with individuals in the AD spectrum.
Susan Pringle-Cohan
A veritable gold mine of information ... its scope is encyclopedic ... well beyond just ideas for the Alzheimer's patient ... An ideal reference book, a ‘must-have' for all activities directors of any skilled-care or assisted-care facility.
