Developing Support Groups for Individuals with Early-Stage Alzheimer's Disease Developing Support Groups

Planning, Implementation, and Evaluation By Robyn Yale

Publisher's Description:

Traditionally, much of the literature on Alzheimer's Disease has focused on caregivers rather than on people with dementia. Now, this innovative book shows readers how to help people with Alzheimer's Disease by implementing support groups that meet their needs.

This important reference provides step-by-step guidelines and ready-to use forms for developing, facilitating, and administering effective support groups for people in the early stages of Alzheimer's disease. Based on the research and clinical experience of Robyn Yale, whose pioneering work in this field has become a model for the development of support groups around the country, this book shows how to select group participants, train group facilitators, and address administrative concerns. Supplemented by role plays for practicing ways to handle difficult situations, this helpful book is an invaluable resource for social workers, adult day care providers, researchers, Alzheimer's Association chapter staff, and other heath care professionals working with people in the early stages of Alzheimer's Disease.
