by Dillon, Melissa, M.S., California State University, Long Beach, 2014, 51; 1527916
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this directed project is to create an evidence-based cognitively, physically, and socially stimulating program for older adults living with early stage dementia in an assisted living setting. A current manual used at a large national assisted living company has been revised using the biopsychosocial model to support programming for older adults in the early stages of dementia. Research was complied to modify the current manual to better serve this population.
