Fresh Activity Ideas for seniors with Alzheimers/Dementia.

Started by

I'm looking for some fun stimulating activities for residents with Alzheimers/Dementia. Ive done this for a little while and i want something fresh for the residents to enjoy this summer.


My aunt loved to play spoons in a kitchen band, and one of the places her little group played for was the local nursing home. She continued to play spoons in that band even after she developed dementia and became a resident in that home.

Making music, singing, and watching music performed is often enjoyable at almost any stage of dementia.

Could you form a little band?
I host a tasteful daily cartoon caption contest that measures how funny you are at . It's a fun daily creative exercise .

Keep the conversation going (or start a new one)
