This video is based on Barbara Sherman's world-acclaimed book of the same name. Filmed entirely on location at residential and day care facilities, it is an invaluable aid and training tool for tertiary institutions, nursing homes, hostels, aged-care teams, community care and family homes.
Author and program consultant Barbara Sherman is a highly experienced social worker, counsellor, caseworker and family therapist, now working as an educator and adviser in aged care. She was also a home carer - her late husband, Bill had dementia.
"To date, the best film my students and I have seen on dignified caregiving we can bring to dementia patients who display challenging behaviours. We all appreciated the vignettes which occured at an actual nursing home....with real dementia patients, and real caregivers. Hands-on experience is best, but background knowledge and theory given in the classroom is profoundly enriched by this wonderful straight-forward film. A 'must-see' for both educators and caregivers."

"This is an excellent video and should be available to all nursing homes, hostels, aged care teams and carers, for repeated viewing."
