Games and Activities for Alzheimer's Patients and Beyond
If you're dealing with an Alzheimer's diagnosis, whether in a loved one or a patient under your care, you may have noticed that it's triggered a sense of ennui and disengagement from the sufferer. One of the most challenging and difficult parts about Alzheimer's is that it deteriorates a sufferer's memory, sharpness and thought. Therefore, keeping patients engaged with special Alzheimer's activities can help stir up memories, create emotional connections, restore self-expression and even soothe some anxiety and depression. The same goes for sufferers of dementia and other conditions where disengagement is side effect.
To help encourage more engagement and expression, medical professionals have developed special Alzheimer's games, puzzles and activities that can help stimulate the mind. They're also designed to help reconnect homebound patients with activities they once loved. For example, you might use an activity board with a gardening theme to give patients the experience of gardening and being outside. Other activities, like puzzles for seniors, are made just for elderly patients with convenient magnetic backings, stands and vibrant images. The avid puzzler will appreciate these special, senior-friendly puzzles and games.
