“My supervising staff members at Bergen Regional Medical Center have received TTAP Method Certification. Thanks to the implementation of the TTAP method, Bergen Regional Medical Center in New Jersey is now on the forefront in activities. Dr. Linda Madori’s “Transcending Dementia through the TTAP Method” has brought knowledge to the Therapeutic Recreation Staff which has been enhanced the residents’ quality of life at BRMC. I also recommend this book for families who have loved ones with Alzheimer’s disease. This book provides a new approach on how to deal with this disease and the benefits of using the TTAP method.”

Having worked in dementia care for many years, I was thrilled to help bring Dr. Linda Levine Madori’s TTAP Method to aging network personnel around New York State. Over 175 participants completed the one day certificate TTAP Method training program in November and December 2011 at six locations around the state. The Therapeutic Thematic Arts Programming training was the most successful course of the quarter. Feedback documented that the trainees appreciated the content as well as the instructor; one trainee noted, “Presenter was knowledgeable, utilized active experiences & related to each discipline present.” I hope you enjoy Dr. Levine Madori’s recent book which is the first of its kind to bring “ACTIVE TREATMENT guidelines” for dementia care to adult day programs, in-home services, assisted living centers and nursing homes.”

“Brilliant and must reading for practitioners today. This is an important clinical text for anyone engaging with Alzheimer’s patients. Dr. Madori has thoroughly researched her subject and made her case for the efficacy of the TAPP method. Family caregivers would also benefit greatly from instruction in this approach.”
