Caring for someone with Alzheimer’s or related dementia?

Here’s a memory care tip from ActivCare Living:
Seasonal events are great triggers for reminiscing. Talk about holiday decorating and family traditions as great ways to re-live the happy memories.

At ActivCare Mission Bay, Nestor, our Environmental Services Director is placing the star on the Christmas tree. Happy Holidays!

MAKE ART TO LAST - The simple act of placing hand created masterpieces into mats and frames gives the art project a whole new level of importance. The benefits of art therapy for seniors with Alzheimer’s is well documented and published. Rather than just performing art projects for the current benefit, make it last and add to the purpose for creating the art. Begin the art project with the mission of re-decorating a wall or a chosen room of the house. Decide how many pieces will be needed, decide on a color palette and finally decide on a theme for the art. The end result may take 3 or 4 or even 5 sessions, but the end result will be very meaningful for all involved. By using standard size artist paper it is easy and relatively inexpensive to find pre-cut mats and frames from stores like Michael’s or Hobby Lobby.
