While working in residential aged care I was asked if someone in our team would like to run a meditation group. I have always practiced and been interested in meditation so I jumped at the chance to run the weekly group in our facility.
A great way to start the morning in memory care. This activity would be held while enjoying our morning tea shortly after our walking group, we would commence with news and views every morning.
This is a great art activity for Seniors that everyone can enjoy and create a beautiful piece of art work. These types of simple creative activities can be enjoyed by a person living with Alzheimer’s or dementia, It’s an activity that turns out well giving everyone who participates a sense of achievement.
Keeping active can improve the well-being of seniors with dementia. Exercise is a great, drug free way to elevate moods and reduce the difficult behaviors that can arise in people with dementia like agitation, sundowning, disrupted sleep, and more.
