We believe that every human being, no matter how impaired, has the ability to love and be loved. We believe that every person has an enduring sense of self and a need to be in harmony with his or her environment.

+Alzheimer's Reading Room
This training video is designed as a teaching aid for adult day care professionals; however, after reviewing it, is clear that this could be of great help to not only professionals in the Alzheimer's community, but also to at home caregivers of persons living with dementia or Alzheimer's.
I would also suggest that this is good share among families, relatives and friends. There is a lot of useful informaton here. The video is education and describes some excellent tools that all caregivers could use.
The video comes with a workbook that can be download here - Circle of Harmony.
The COPSA Day Program practices are rooted in some fundamental beliefs about our clients and their families: "We believe that every human being, no matter how impaired, has the ability to love and be loved. We believe that every person has an enduring sense of self and a need to be in harmony with his or her environment, and we believe that our work with caregivers is as important as our work with clients"Source: COPSA Day Program, COPSA Institute for Alzheimer's Disease and Related Disorders at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey--University Behavioral HealthCare.
