COVID-19 continues to challenge aging services more than any other event in recent history. Dr. Power shares how Raising the Bar Practice Guides meet a timely need.
Raising The Bar is a Must-Have.
Skillfully weaves in proactive, inclusive, capacity-building approaches.
What we want for our loved ones and ourselves!
I love that it is in "I" language!
The voice and choice of individuals living with dementia are at the center of all discussion around support and quality of life. To honor this value, the Guides state outcomes and practices in the first person
Living well with dementia is a human right. Individuals living with dementia are often stigmatized and devalued, which impacts negatively on their well-being.
Appropriate support for individuals living with dementia focuses and builds on current strengths and abilities, rather than on weaknesses or inabilities.
Individuals living with dementia are entitled to accommodation, just as other individuals who live with different physical, cognitive, intellectual, and developmental abilities. The rights and needs of individuals living with dementia are covered by the American Disabilities Act (ADA).
Practice Guides are premised on the vision of inclusive living for all individuals who live with dementia.
What does the downloadable version offer?
The downloadable version has the same full-color design features that the print version does, and it includes the downloadable Assessment Tool, and brief introductory video that sets the stage for your use of the Practice Guide. What the downloadable version offers that the print version does not is hyperlink navigation. What this means is that hyperlinks are used to make navigating to referenced information elsewhere in the guide easy. Clear instructions for hyperlink navigation are provided at the beginning of your guide and as a separate document.
What does the print version offer?
The print version is a spiral-bound, full-color resource. It includes access to the downloadable Assessment Tool, and a brief introductory video that sets the stage for your use of the Practice Guide.
