Aquatic Therapy for Memory Care?
Aquatics for Alzheimer's?
You can always count on the South to treat its elders with respect. But, this isn't just about kindness, it's about a novel intervention for memory care.
South Carolina's WAVES program uses water to help promote emotional well-being and a sense of personal accomplishment in patients with dementia, while
  • improving appetite,
  • reducing stress and
  • helping residents get a great night's sleep.

Pool inspectors. They're your friDo Not Enter!end. Really. In a just-published CDC study,
  • 12.1% of all pool inspections resulted in immediate closure. Why? No chlorine, for one.
  • Therapy pool inspections had the lowest percentage of disinfectant and pH level violations but the highest percentage of other water chemistry violations (43.9%)

Free Download: Patient Handout on Aquatic Therapy

Aquatic Therapy Handout
Advance Magazine just published an
Aquatic Therapy Patient Handout.

And, hey, they almost got it right
(catch the errors here).

Don't like this version? An older version is available. And another.

Don't want to use any of these versions in toto? Use them at-will for patient education. Cut and paste ideas, language, etc. into your own brochures and handouts. As long as it gets the word out to patients... have at it!
