We know how often the person with dementia can lose the connection with the world around them. These cards and activities are intended to help an individual reconnect and remember the people in their community.
We provide many activity ideas for the individual who loved to garden and who loved the outdoors. These butterflies and flowers will aid in reconnecting with a treasured pastime. Just seeing the bright colors bring smiles and trigger reminiscing.
Competition that is fun and affirming was the intent of choosing this activity. This game has many opportunities to provide the feeling of victory while encouraging laughter and pleasure. Enjoy playing bean bag toss, counting, keeping score, color matching, bean bag slide and what is red and blue.
There are many seniors who enjoyed working jigsaw puzzles. The Pentominoes activities are meant to bring back the joy of that pleasure. Manipulating the pieces of the puzzle is good for dexterity and can provide opportunities for organizing and problem solving at a very basic level.
Our memory card game is ideal for the individual who enjoyed playing cards and games yet needs a simpler version. Since eating is an area of concern for care providers, we utilize food cards. The individual gets to match food, sort food, plan a meal, play concentration and a variation of go-fish.
Mathematics is a part of everyday life… professionally, at home or even having fun in a casino. With Shut the Box, rolling the die and flipping the numbers can provide a way to stimulate number recognition while offering opportunities for simple math fun.
We have had many requests for emotion activities. These beautiful photo cards provide activities around the 5 most recognizable emotions: happy, sad, angry, surprised and disgusted. The activities provide an opportunity for the individual with memory loss to get in touch with emotions through matching, sorting, why/because discussions, story-telling and reminiscing.
