Product Review:
Learn how to develop your own Creative Expression Activities Program by Dr Dalia Gottlieb-Tanaka. The program Dalia developed touches on various topics such as growing up, friendship, the waltz, pets, beauty, love and seasons of the year.... "Topics can be drawn from various sources, such as the seniors themselves, literature on aging, life review and reminiscing, and various events in the care facility. I make a special effort to select topics that are relevant to the seniors in the group. By linking life experiences and the interests of the seniors, we increase their ability to stay engaged in the program activities."  Read the Review...
