Many of our clients facing dementia benefit from assistance with a structured and predictable routine. Outside of the routine we try to spend time doing fun activities that help in the emotional battle that some clients face when dealing with memory loss. We also encourage our family members to engage in these activities during their time with their loved one.
Some of these activities include:
- Crossword puzzles
- Word find puzzles
- Watching movies
- Listening to music
- Looking through old photos
- Initiating conversation about things that don’t require recollection of specific events or time
It can be challenging to think of things to do with a loved one who suffers from memory loss. There is often fear of making them uncomfortable or frustrated. We get it. We pride ourselves on working with our caregivers, our clients and their family members so they can make the most of their time together. Having a support team of caring and knowledgeable professionals that are Leaders in Dementia Care Certified can make all the difference in the emotional well-being of you and your loved one. The Alzheimer’s Association Colorado Chapter is also a great resource for families facing dementia.
