This short video will provide caregivers with interactive hands-on activities designed to stimulate cognitive processes and foster a positive interaction with the person they are caring for. Caring for someone who has dementia is one of the most challenging and complicated experiences a person will encounter.
Dementia/ Alzheimer’s Activity “Where have you BEAN?”, provides mentally stimulating activities that promote positive interactions between caregivers and people with any stage of memory loss. For these activities we will give you ideas for objects that are commonly found around the house, but you can always improvise. The activities will be offered at three different skill levels and you can modify as needed. You will need a piece of paper and something to write with for this activity.
