Summary, etc.:
"The purpose of restorative care nursing is to take an active role in helping older adults maintain their highest level of function, thus preventing excess disability. This book was written to help formal and informal caregivers and administrators at all levels to understand the basic philosophy of restorative care, and be able to develop and implement successful restorative care programs." "The book provides a complete 6-week education program in restorative care for caregivers, many suggestions for suitable activities, and practical strategies for motivating both older adults and caregivers to engage in restorative care. In addition, the book provides an overview of the requirements for restorative care across all settings, the necessary documentation, and ways in which to complete that documentation."--Jacket.
