I'm taking a position for a residential facility for Alzheimers' Seniors. I'm wondering if anyone whom works alot with seniors has any suggestions for major likes and dislikes of your client population. Also, if you care to throw out any knowledge that may contribute to a better experience for my new clients.

I'm wondering about massage...light pressure on the hands of arthritics. Also, I'll be working alone most of the time and so music selection is up to me; I'm thinking classical and soothing, perhaps nature sounds. Next, reminiscing is important for Alzheimers and I'll be interested to hear topic suggestions. I'm going to do my homework online for this population since it's been years since I've worked with them. In the meantime, everyone's suggestions would be appreciated.
