by Farrow, Maree | Alzheimer's Australia.

Publisher: Scullin, A.C.T. Alzheimer's Australia 2010Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: March 2010Summary: This guide provides information for health and lifestyle professionals about modifiable risk and protective factors for dementia. Each section explains the evidence for the association of that factor with dementia risk and provides a practical guide to the resources available to health and lifestyle professionals to assist them to work with their clients to address factors of concern. Where possible, hyperlinks are provided to those resources. The guide aims to provide health and lifestyle professionals with a quick reference source to enable them to offer strategies to clients for maintaining their cognitive health and reducing their dementia risk.

Forgotten notes : pilot study of a choir for people living with dementia in a residential aged care setting /

by Daly, Maree | National Ageing Research Institute | Purchase, Rachel | Quinn, Loretta | Doyle, Colleen.

Publisher: Melbourne, Vic. National Ageing Research Institute 2013Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: March 2013 "final report to Benetas" - from cover Includes bibliographic references pp. 42-47Summary: Dementia is a condition that mostly affects older people and is therefore common in people living in residential aged care. The prevalence of behavioural and psychological symptoms of dementia (BPSD), such as depression, anxiety, agitation, wandering and screaming are higher in people with dementia living in residential care than in the broader population of people with dementia. These symptoms can have a considerable negative impact on the quality of life of those experiencing them and are a challenge to carers and to the broader aged care sector. Choral singing is a form of group singing that incorporates scheduled practice and performance. It may have benefits for self ]esteem, facilitating participation and cooperation in a group task and fostering a sense of community.Availability: (1)

High care residential aged care facilities in Victoria : consultation paper /

by Victoria. Department of Human Services.

Publisher: Melbourne, Vic. Victorian Government Publishing Service 2000Description: 59 p.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: July 2000Summary: Over 36,000 older Victorians are residents of Commonwealth-funded residential aged care facilities, of whom just under half are in high care residential care facilities. The Commonwealth Government funds, regulates and sets standards for high and low care facilities. In 1995 the previous Victorian Government removed the State regulatory framework for nursing homes. At the time, it was argued that the State regulatory framework duplicated the Commonwealth's role. The Victorian Government believes that the community expects all levels of Government to work co-operatively to promote the well being of residents living in aged care facilities. Through this paper the Victorian Government wishes to stimulate discussion about positive action that can be taken to promote a greater sense of confidence among older people and their carers about residential aged care services. The Victorian Government believes that people living in residential aged care facilities are entitled to feel secure that they will receive the services they need and that they will be treated with dignity and respect. This paper and the consultations with the community is aimed at promoting these objectives.Availability: (1)

Love, loss, and laughter : seeing Alzheimer's differently /

by Greenblat, Cathy.

Publisher: Guildford, CT Globe Pequot Press 2011Description: xvi, 158 p.Summary: More than 5.3 million Americans suffer from Alzheimer's, and nearly 11 million family members and friends serve as unpaid caregivers. "Love, Loss, and Laughter" challenges the typical perception of people with Alzheimer's as "empty shells," lost to themselves and others. Endorsed by Alzheimer's Disease International (ADI), this important work melds uplifting photographs with thoughtful text by the author, care partners, researchers, medical practitioners, social care providers, activists, and people living with dementia diagnoses. While research for a cure will one day bring an end to the problem, this inspirational book shows and tells how today we can achieve ADI's vision of "a better life for people with dementia and their carers." More than one hundred touching photographs --taken in homes, memory clinics, day programs, and residential centers in the US, France, India, Japan, the Dominican Republic and Canada -- are interwoven with insightful commentaries from thirty-five international contributors whose personal experiences and statements about good practices reinforce the author's message: people with dementia retain vital capacities. Their quality of life can be significantly enhanced via person-centered care that increases confidence, nourishes capacities, and opens better communication strategies.While there is great sadness in losing one's cognitive abilities, family members and caregivers can also share a wealth of love and moments of joy. With the help of this book, our view of Alzheimer's can shift from "the long goodbye" to "the long hello".Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
