Abstract
Demonstrates practical ways of dealing with difficult behaviours such as wandering, angry outbusts, and delusions. Behaviour norms for the Alzheimer's resident are discussed with examples of behaviour management as opposed to behaviour modification
GPEP comments: The short length makes it very usable in a workshop. There is some incongruity between the strategies discussed and those that are demonstrated

Abstract
This video is for seniors who are still living independently in the community, it is not a video for frail seniors. The first 10 minutes of this video involves seniors talking about their experiences of having had a fall, what they have learned from these experiences and how they have managed to build daily physical exercise into their days. Facilitated by a seniors fitness instructor and two Tai Chi teachers, the exercise routine can be used to lead a group of seniors through the exercises or it can by used by individuals at home as a daily fitness program. The exercises take about 20 minutes.
