Based on rigorous dementia research, this book is packed with practical projects and activity suggestions that you can get started on right now. It also outlines the mental and physical benefits of each activity, so you can choose the most appropriate ones based on individual symptoms and needs.
Inspiration is endless here! From crafts and games to exercise ideas, the book includes more than 70 brain-stimulating activities, as well as suggestions on how to adapt the activities for different stages and abilities.
Step-by-step instructions and examples guide you through each activity, so there are no barriers to reaping the benefits of a stimulating craft or hobby.
Packed with full-color photography throughout, the book is a pleasure to use as a reference or as a regular part of wider dementia care. Visual tips and hints make it easy to jump right in.
The book includes two sections for each activity: one that a person with dementia or memory loss themselves can safely engage and interact with; and another for relatives, friends, and carers, which includes added guidance and information on possible reactions and intended benefits.
