Stress for care providers and distress for clients with varying degrees of dementia—these are the dynamics Karen A. Lyman discovered in her study of eight Alzheimers day care centers in California. Speaking as an advocate for both day care providersMoreStress for care providers and distress for clients with varying degrees of dementia—these are the dynamics Karen A. Lyman discovered in her study of eight Alzheimers day care centers in California.

Speaking as an advocate for both day care providers and people with Alzheimers disease, the author presents a model of what works in Alzheimers care. Many strategies developed by caregivers are self-defeating, Lyman found. Drawing on personal reflections, interviews, and anecdotes, she demonstrates how caregivers struggle to maintain order through often unnecessary control contributed to patients increased sense of self-doubt, anxiety, and incompetence.

Negative expectations by caregivers brought on depression and rapid intellectual decline in patients, a sense of hopelessness that has been called therapeutic nihilism.Lyman identifies unsupportive institutional policies, restrictive environments, and poorly organized programs as chronic sources of stress. The alternatives she offers meet caregivers needs and permit clients a degree of self-determination and identity. Her model for care will be of great interest to gerontological professionals, policy makers, and family members dealing with victims of Alzheimers disease.
