Résumé :

This book clearly explains how a home-like setting contributes to the smooth operation of a facility for people with dementia. Staff will see improved resident functioning resulting from environmental changes that recognize residents' former roles, relationships, and routines. By supporting residents' memories of themselves and increasing their sense of familiarity and control, care programs will reap unexpected rewards from their residents' renewed independence and contentment.
