Activities for People with Dementia

It's important to have thoughtful and specially designed activities for those with Dementia, Alzheimer's and others who live with similar types of memory loss. At The Alzheimer's Store we are constantly testing new stimulating activities to help your patient or loved-one remain engaged with the outside world and with each other. Be sure to look at our MUSIC THERAPY category for our music player and other music related items.

Choosing activities and entertainment that remind the user of their past interests is key. Whether your loved one enjoys coloring, puzzles, DVDs, music, or working with their hands, you can find a new way to help them celebrate their passion. 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!
