Activities For People With Dementia

activities for seniors It's important to have activities for those with dementia, Alzheimer's and others who suffer from similar types of memory loss. At The Alzheimer's Store we are constantly testing new stimulating activities to help your senior remain engaged with the outside world.Each week you can check our new product category as we find and develop products that most stores do not have. We market some of our products in different categories. Be sure to look at the MUSIC THERAPY category for our music player. There is nothing like it on the market.
In addition to providing a sense of purpose, activities for dementia patients can help to reduce feelings of agitation and aggression. When a variety of dementia activities are included in your patient’s daily routine, behaviors like wandering and rumination can often be reduced.

senior activities At the Alzheimer’s Store, you will find a tested
selection of music, books and brain games for seniors in all stages of dementia. Activities for people with dementia help the patient or loved one maintain a sense of self by choosing activities and entertainment that remind them of their distant past interests.By being able to do an activity independently gives the senior a sense of self worth. Whether your loved one enjoys board games, reading, music, or working with their hands, you can find a new way to help them celebrate their passion. Alzheimer's as well as other forms of dementia and general memory loss can be delayed with aggressive mental stimulation. The Alzheimer's Store is constantly reviewing new activities appropriate for people with dementia.

If you are looking for ways to help someone with dementia retain their memories, nostalgic picture books are a great choice. Whether you choose 1950s fashions or famous trains. These large color picture books could jog some treasured childhood memories. To help battle the early stages of the dementia, the Alzheimer’s Store also carries an assortment of mind-strengthening activity books. Using brainstorming and matching games, you are helping dementia patients exercise their cognitive skills and hold onto cherished memories.
