Taking Part: new version of activities book from Alzheimer's Society

29 May 2013

Alzheimer’s Society has announced the launch of a newly revised version of one of its most popular resources for health and social care professionals.

The newly-titled Taking part: activities for people with dementia is a totally updated version of the original Alzheimer's Society book of activities, first published in 2002.

The book includes detailed breakdowns of more than 80 activity ideas that detail precisely 'What you need' and 'How it's done'. Many of these examples come from Alzheimer’s Society local offices as well as other professionals, organisations and family carers.

Each chapter is dedicated to a theme e.g. life history work, gardening, and computers and the internet. Chapters also include an overview of recent research findings in that area, practical tips and case studies of innovative and successful activity programmes from a range of different care settings which bring the ideas to life.

This book – fully updated and revised for 2013 – provides a valuable source of information for anyone involved in supporting or caring for someone with dementia.

The book is available from the Alzheimers Society website
