NCCA Creative Caregiving Guide

Author: 
National Centre for Creative Aging

The NCCA Creative Caregiving Guide is a free, web-based and community-shared resource, specially designed for both family and professional caregivers of adults who live with Alzheimer's disease and related cognitive disorders. It provides an expanding array of creative lessons to address the physical, mental, and social needs of family and professional care partners of adults living with Alzheimer's disease and related cognitive disorders.

From the convenience of your own home, office, or care setting you can learn, experience, and share vibrant, research-based caregiving exercises that help you and your care partner to flourish in the art of daily caregiving. 

This guide, created by the National Centre for Creative Aging (USA) was supported by the Helen Bader Foundation, The Rosalinde and Arthur Gilbert Foundation, and the Pabst Charitable Foundation for the Arts. The University of Central Florida College of Arts & Humanities led the research efforts for the Caregiving Guide translating creative techniques to user friendly exercises for caregivers.
