This is the best reference book for activity directors working in long-term care, assisted living, and adult day programs, and it's the most popular text for training new professionals. This book is down to earth, easy to understand, and comprehensive enough to answer your difficult questions about working with different resident groups, meeting standards, working with team and family members, and managing your department. It lets you see how all the parts of your facility can fit together to make an empowering, healthful, person-centered environment for everyone. It shows you how to provide care that satisfies, and even exceeds, health care regulations. And it gives you suggestions on how to stay sane, at least most of the time.

A great reference book with many excellent activities and reproducible forms, the seventh edition also includes information the new F-Tag codes, changes to the survey process, cultural sensitivity, and details on successful person-centered programming.
