Item description for Movement With Meaning: A Multisensory Program for Individuals With Early-stage Alzheimer's Disease by Barbara Larsen & Lynda Gianforte Mansfield...

Reinforce the remaining strengths and abilities of people with dementia with this interactive, multisensory movement program. Developed by an experienced educator, "Movement with Meaning" uses activities that stimulate all five senses to enhance the well-being of older adults. Designed specifically to meet the needs of people with early-stage Alzheimer's disease, the program combines gentle dance movements, yoga-inspired poses, and breathing exercises with music, poetry, and specific sensory activities. Participants become focused in the present through total immersion in short, concentrated exercises that stimulate physical, mental, and sensory awareness. Individuals not only enjoy the engaging activities, but experience reduced tension, enhanced relaxation, improved balance and coordination, decreased disorientation, and increased social interaction

This detailed manual makes establishing a Movement with Meaning program easy at any facility. Step-by-step instructions for each activity are supported by more than 100 photographs. Additionally, four 30-minute sessions are described in detail. Along with suggested themes and activities, the manual supplies group leaders with valuable information about selecting participants and organizing the environment.

Movement with Meaning sessions can be customized for individual participants, making the program ideal for adult day centers, assisted living facilities, and long-term care settings. Recreational therapists, OTs, PTs, and activity directors will find this program invaluable for strengthening older adults' skills while also providing entertaining activities. Add Movement with Meaning to your therapeutic programming today and experience the benefits!
