I'm a home health aide in an assisted living facilty. I've recently switched shifts and am spending more time in our memory care unit as a result. I have experience helping other aides in memory care, but am new to being directly responsible for residents there. I am already exploring supplemental materials provided by my employer. Do you have any recomendations for books, websites, or videos that can provide additional information on how to interact with my residents?

Hi! Well, of course, I recommend my website 🙂 but also the Alzheimer’s Reading Room website. I’ve written a few things on that site regarding specifically long-term dementia care. You can type my name into the search bar and find them!
