Abstract It takes a very special person to care for the Alzheimer's resident. This program-a must-see for health care workers in assisted living facilities-discusses causes of Alzheimer's disease and related dementias; symptoms and behaviors that accompany the stages of AD; strategies for coping with AD-related restlessness, agitation, and wandering; strategies for verbal and nonverbal communication with AD residents; family member guilt over placing a loved one with AD in an ALF; maintenance of a safe and engaging environment for AD residents; and ethical challenges faced by AD caregivers. Commentary by ALF professionals and family members provides additional depth...and poignancy. Extremely thorough! Meets the Florida Level I requirement for ALFs. Designated for 4 contact hours of continuing nursing education.
