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. Stimulating activities will help your senior remain engaged with the outside world. 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 judged 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.
