“A must-see for those new to the field of activities for seniors or those wanting to improve their technique with a new approach. Following Dalia's recommendations and modelling her engaging style you will develop a caring, creative and fun activity.”

Debbie Cossover, Activity Co-ordinator, L’Chaim Adult Day Centre

“Fabulous! Superb Visuals!! Extremely engaging !!!
This e-Book shows how a variety of creative arts can be used to make contact and encourage self expression with a person with dementia symptoms; painting, music, dance, verbal/non-verbal interaction. I felt like I was there. The simple to use videos drew me in as a visual learner, and it felt like such an honour to actually witness this precious work Dalia has done. I liked the videos being part of the e-Book. The video segments brought the words to life and validated their meaning.”
