Overview

Do you know or care for someone with Alzheimer's disease? Then you know how difficult it is to engage and entertain someone who has a short attention span, poor short-term memory, and a limited ability to communicate. Each Sunshine and Joy activity book contains more than 100 conversational activities designed to overcome these obstacles and to make it easy for you to "draw out" a person with mid- to late-stage Alzheimer's. The primary goal of these activities is to go beyond passive listening and achieve active participation. Whether you're an activity director, family member, caregiver, or friend, you'll find these books make it fun and easy to stimulate the mind.

Meet the Author

Jill Hernandez is the author of two Alzheimer's activity books, SUNSHINE AND JOY'S BIG BOOK OF ALZHEIMER'S ACTIVITIES, VOLUMES 1 & 2.

Jill's experience with Alzheimer's comes from caring for her mother. Over an 11-year period, Jill's mother progressed from a state of mild confusion to her current condition of being able to respond with only a few words. To keep her mother an active participant in life, Jill developed a series of verbal activities in which participation, rather than accuracy, is the primary goal.

Jill's activity books have received an enthusiastic response from the Alzheimer's community. The books contain a large quantity and variety of conversational activities that are stimulating and entertaining to PALs (People with Alzheimer's) and caregivers alike.

Jill lives with her husband and mother in Bedford, Texas.
