Non-drug, hands-on, personal care incorporating stimulating activity has been shown in the past and, I believe, will continue to show the best results in Alzheimer’s and dementia care. Our care facilities need to be funded in such a way that activity specialists can be part of the staffing. These specialists will be able to provide the strong, focused stimulation required to prevent apathy in our loved ones who have Alzheimer’s or another dementia.
