The book, A Dementia Care Class: A Planning/Operation Guidebook (Chuo Hoki Publishing), Co-Authored by Dr. Seike Has Been Published
Dr. Aya Seike and Takashi Sakurai, M.D. (Center Director for the Center for Comprehensive Care and Research on Memory Disorders) wrote a book, A Dementia Care Class: A Planning/Operation Guidebook (Chuo Hoki Publishing).
The “New Orange Plan”, a comprehensive strategy to promote dementia-related policies, offers information about regional activities and community resources that value the perspectives of people with dementia and their families. Various support efforts, such as Café Dementia, dementia care classes and Care Salon, have been implemented in local communities.
However, despite enthusiastically initiating such programs, certain obstacles can arise, such as:
-The operation cannot continue due to understaffing
-Membership become fixed (new members do not join)
-People who are interested in joining do not know where to start
-Participants lack confidence to continue the program
This book offers readers precise information about how to plan and operate sustainable programs.
Additionally, the book is written so that readers can skip around and go directly to their chapter of interest.
It is a book for readers from all walks of life, including: organizers of existing programs, people who want to initiate a new program and people interested in community building, and nursing and social work.
