Location: Indiana, United States

I became a Professor Emeritus after serving 29 years as a recreational therapy faculty member at Indiana University. I'm a long-time Hoosier, having grown up in Hanover, Indiana. My RT practitioner work was in psych/mental health. After completing my Ph.D. at the University of Illinois, my first faculty position was at the University of North Texas. RT has been a wonderful profession for me as I have had the opportunity to serve as an author and national leader.

Buettner Research on Mentally Stimulating Activities

Thanks to someone who provided access to the article via the ATRAnet, I was able to retrieve and read Linda Buettner's and her colleagues research article showing the value of mentally stimulating activities for men with early-stage Alzheimer's.

The article titled "Cognitive Stimulation for Apathy in Probable Early-Stage Alzheimer's" appeared in the Journal of Aging Research, Volume 2011.
