The book was fabulous, as is the author! I more or less used most of the practices in my mindfulness training at a Phoenix based senior center for people with dementia and they loved it!

Do you work in a setting that assists people living with dementia - a residence or adult day program? Do you support or provide care in your home for a family member who has Alzheimer's or a similar condition? Are you a researcher in the field of dementia? If so, this 60 pg. guidebook with online resources is for you!
The author combined her expertise in dementia with her extensive mindfulness training to introduce a modified mindful program that accommodates for the cognitive deficits. Please also note, you do not have to have dementia to benefit from this book!
Eleanor Silverberg has written a very practical guide that fills a gap in the area of mindfulness – a practice that has become very popular in recent years. Research is emerging on the benefits of mindfulness meditation. In this new guide for professionals and family care partners, Eleanor has taken the traditional practices and exercises and has adapted them and tested them so that people living with moderate symptoms of dementia, with support from their care partners, can also reap the benefits of mindfulness.
