Product description

The author provides strategies for restructuring the physical and social environment to facilitate person-centered care.""The Enduring Self"" provides a foundation for culture change efforts in community-based and residential care settings, showing administrators and care staff how to reframe communication and interactions to build more meaningful relationships with people with Alzheimer's.
