Through the Seasons, second edition

Activities for Memory-Challenged Adults and Their Caregivers

The thread that ties together the strands of guidance and understanding contained in Through the Seasons is the word 'joy'—joy in those who are experiencing dementia, joy in those who are providing care to them, and the joy and satisfaction that comes from knowing that there are tools available to help those who want to improve the care of people with dementia. By providing a practical guide to helping people achieve the satisfaction that comes from having enjoyable interactions and accomplishing pleasurable tasks, Through the Seasons has played and will continue to play an important role in maximizing quality of life of people with dementia.from the foreword by Peter Rabins MD, MPH, author of The 36-Hour Day: A Family Guide to Caring for People Who Have Alzheimer Disease, Other Dementias, and Memory Loss

Dementia and related disorders impact the lives of those affected in countless ways, making it difficult to remain independent at work, at home, and in the wider world. But recent studies have shown that structured activities can make a significant, positive difference by stimulating mental engagement while improving interactions between caregivers and memory-challenged adults.

Fun and easy to use, this large-format, full-color picture book is divided into themes representing the four seasons. Each section describes several multisensory experiences—such as walking on the beach, making ice cream, or planting flowers—along with related topics for discussion and activities to elicit memories and encourage new positive associations. The topics and activities incorporate all five senses to facilitate connections and conversations.

The book adopts a compassionate, person-centered approach and is designed so that two people can easily look together while sitting side by side. This latest edition, which has been thoroughly revised,

•takes a multicultural approach
•includes all-new images, as well as 14 completely new highlighted activities
•integrates modern wellness concepts
•features a new introduction and an updated resource section
•offers guidance about activity planning and optimizing interactions between care partners and the individual with dementia

Helping you and your loved one make cherished new memories, Through the Seasons is an indispensable solution to the question of what to do together to maintain well-being and connection.

Reviews

"For a person in memory care, keeping the mind engaged is vital for physical and mental well-being. Moreover, activities that engage the whole person and acknowledge their dignity are important to ensuring that they participate and find joy in the activity set before them. A new second edition of the book Through the Seasons: Activities for Memory-Challenged Adults and their Caregivers lays out 32 experiences for caregivers and memory-challenged adults to try together throughout the year."—Kristin Easterling, HomeCare Magazine

"Through the Seasons is a must-have for anyone living with cognitive impairment and his or her care partners, as engagement in meaningful and interesting activities is vitally important for well-being. Organized into seasonal activity ideas, this book delightfully provides creative and fun things to do and talk about."—Karen Love, Dementia Action Alliance

"Green and Beloff have once again written an essential addition to any memory aid library. Their expert knowledge is insightful, helpful, and easy to understand. Through the Seasons is a must-have resource for anyone dealing with memory issues."—Steve Sussman, Home Instead Senior Care

"Through the Seasons offers holistic, person-centered, practical guidance for professionals and family care partners. Drs. Green and Beloff integrate wellness with person-centered approaches, and evidence-based cognitive stimulation through seasonally focused, creative, and meaningful activities that promote joy, purpose, dignity, and self-worth for the older adult living with memory loss."—Rita Altman, Sunrise Senior Living

"This book offers a variety of creative activities meant to stimulate communication with loved ones who have a memory disorder."—Family Caregiver Alliance, reviewing a previous edition

"A beautifully composed book, with colorful and clear images, font, and design. A great deal of thought and expertise obviously went into its writing. The book would be equally useful for family caregivers and professionals."—Activities, Adaptation and Aging, reviewing a previous edition

"This fun, easy to use book may provide an opportunity for locus of control and enjoyment for memory-challenged individuals who have lost much of their communication skills. The pictures are wonderful and the activities are designed to be flexible and can be used in various ways. This book is certainly a useful resource for caregivers and will provide enjoyment for all."—Educational Gerontology, reviewing a previous edition
