Summary Activity and engagement are vital to our well-being throughout our lives and this continues to be just as true of people living with dementia. This activity book outlines new approaches to person-centred care for people living with dementia. The activities presented have been designed to provide meaningful engagement for residents while respecting each individual resident's readiness to engage and participate. Drawing on case studies, each chapter recommends the best way to implement ideas such as Namaste care and Memory Cafés, and provide the framework for evaluating whether your approaches support the people in your care to the fullest extent.
