Elder Rehab Program

April 23, 2015

The Elder Rehab program is a student-administered Alzheimer rehabilitation research program that was conceived of and directed by clinical psychologist Sharon Arkin. The program took place between 1996 and 2001 at the University of Arizona, Department of Speech and Hearing Sciences. Funded by the National Institute on Aging, the program measured the effects of a multi-modality intervention program on the language performance, rate of decline, physical fitness, and mood of persons with early to moderate stage Alzheimer s disease.
