Developing an Exemplary Alzheimer's Disease and Dementia Program

Product #1001SG

This book takes the mystery out of translating concepts of dementia care into practice.  Based on the 20-year experience of the Alois Alzheimer Center, one of the nation's premier Alzheimer facilities, the book describes the how-to of developing cutting edge dementia care so that it is a win-win for facilities, staff, residents and their families.  The book explicates the critical ingredients of dementia care units and how to make them a reality.  More than a guidebook, the book helps the reader to engage the critical thinking process necessary to develop or to retool dementia care units to their own situations.

Delegate or Suffocate

Product #1000PT

Delegate or Suffocate explores the joys, questions, challenges and adventures of management. Even though there are many technical examples included in this book on how to approach personnel leadership; there are also many humorous, practical and personal examples of life that are applicable to any style of management and situation a leader may encounter.  The author tells you from personal experience that ‘leaders make or break an organization’ and without good leadership ‘chaos’ reigns. Leadership is leadership and great leaders never stop learning and they do not close their ears to other leaders just because they are not in their field of business.  This book is different in the fact that the author teaches from the perspective of a registered nurse and in the style of a mentor. Since most nursing schools do not teach personnel administration, this author had to learn leadership through the ‘school of hard knocks’. She speaks in a practical and understandable language making this book an easy read. Her goal is to encourage current leaders and new leaders to take the tools she offers and have the courage to step out and believe they can make a difference in their surroundings.
