Helpful Tips for Caregivers

  • Concentrate on the process of the activity, not the results. What matters is that your loved one enjoyed the time spent on it.
  • Sit beside your loved-one in a quiet area with no distractions
  • Avoid shadows or reflections on the pages
  • It may be easier for some to cut out the pages and work on the hard, flat surface of the table
  • Use activities for elderly people with dementia in a group or care setting to bring individuals together and as an entertaining activity that helps combat boredom or depression.
  • If your parent or senior loved one resists an activity, take a break and try again later.
