The full version of shifting focus provides comprehensive information about understanding and responding to dementia behaviour, plus specific advice on how to visit someone with dementia in a long-term care facility and how to communicate with staff in a facility. This full version will be helpful to family members, friends, co-residents and staff in long-term care.
A compact booklet version of shifting focus describes specific behaviours and gives advice on helpful responses to those behaviours.
Both versions of shifting focus are available as pdf downloads on www.shiftingfocus.ca. You can also order print copies of the compact booklet for distribution to your clients and their families. In addition, there is a slide deck that can be downloaded for use by your staff when introducing the long guide and booklet to Residents’ and Family Councils.
