Hands Off Not an Option! free pdf

In recent years, experts in geriatric care have increasingly promoted the use of reminiscence museums, collections of period objects that are used to help senior citizens draw on old memories in order to recall and talk about their past. "Hands Off Not an Option" is a practical guide to making and using such collections, showing how to establish and fill out a museum and illustrating the ways it can be used within senior care facilities and within individual homes. The book will thus be of value both to those practicing in geriatric medical and social care and to individual families working with aged relatives.

The book includes 1 DVD.
