Description

Effective communication in eldercare settings enables better caregiving and enhances understanding and a sense of well-being in those cared for. Changing Seasons: A Language Arts Curriculum for Healthy Aging by Denise L. Calhoun provides families, caregivers, individuals, and program administrators with a language-based, interdisciplinary program to help older adults improve and maintain effective communication skills.
In this volume, Calhoun illustrates a variety of strategies for effective communication with older adults and outlines a compact, easy-to-follow lesson plan for helping these people communicate and engage with the world around them. Each activity reveals new, creative, and fun ways to get individuals to speak, think, write, engage with others, and use their imagination. As activities described herein promote meaningful interactions and the creation of a stimulating environment, Changing Seasons underscores the importance of sustaining quality of life as we and those we love age.
