Movement with Meaning is an activity/exercise program developed to help people with early-stage Alzheimer's retain the highest level of functioning possible. The underlying principle is that activities that stimulate all the senses provide optimal opportunities for reinforcing remaining strengths and promoting a sense of well-being in people with Alzheimer's. The program uses gentle, yoga-influenced movement, simple spoken poetry, auditory/gustatory stimulation, and reminiscence. The book describes how to select participants, establish a supportive environment, and conduct each type of sensory activity. Outlines of four sample 30-minute programs are included. Photos throughout the text show older adults participating in the activities and demonstrate the proper way to do the physical exercises.

The Philosophy of Movement with Meaning; Selecting and Interviewing Participants; Setting the Environment; Centering Through Breathing; Learning by Heart; A Delicate Balance; Nice and Easy Yoga; A Sense of Timing: Music, Rhythm, and Movement; Reawakening the Senses; Carefully Choreographed Chaos.
