Through the Seasons Summary


Through the Seasons: An Activity Book for Memory-Challenged Adults and Caregivers by Cynthia R. Green

Mental stimulation has been found to offer demonstrable benefits for people with Alzheimer disease, dementia, or other memory impairment. Through the Seasons helps family members and caregivers engage memory-challenged adults in simple, enjoyable activities that provide stimulation and enhance communication. Fun and easy to use, this large-format color picture book is divided into themes representing the four seasons. Each section describes several multisensory experiences-such as picking apples or raking leaves-along with related topics for discussion and activities to elicit memories and encourage new positive associations. The topics and activities incorporate all five senses to facilitate connections and conversations with memory-challenged persons across a wide range of cognitive function. Designed by nationally recognized experts in gerontology, geriatrics, and memory enhancement, this workbook provides a scientifically sound, well-developed program that will help family caregivers and professionals maintain and enhance relationships with the persons in their care. It also helps memory-impaired individuals to retain dignity and remain active companions, even as their communication skills become increasingly limited. Through the Seasons includes an introduction with instructions for family and professional caregivers as well as a resources section at the end of the book.

Through the Seasons Reviews


Written by a specialist in gerontology and a psychologist with expertise in memory and brain health, this book offers a variety of creative activities meant to stimulate communication with loved ones who have a memory disorder. * Family Caregiver Alliance *
This book was very useful in Memory Care. It gave GREAT questions to ask. The photos were nice, clean and clear. -- Eileen Fredman, AAC * NCCAP *
A beautifully composed book, with colorful and clear images, font, and design. A great deal of thought and expertise obviously went into its writing. The book would be equally useful for family caregivers and professionals. * Activities, Adaptation and Aging *
This fun, easy to use book may provide an opportunity for locus of control and enjoyment for memory-challenged individuals who have lost much of their communication skills. The pictures are wonderful and the activities are designed to be flexible and can be used in various ways. This book is certainly a useful resource for caregivers and will provide enjoyment for all. * Educational Gerontology *
