Activities and Alzheimer's

Posted on March 16, 2018

"A guitarist visits the home my Mom lives in and it was wonderful to watch a room perk up and sing along. This was the first time I saw Mom try to sing and move her hands to the music." - A member of myALZteam

On myALZteam, the social network and online support group for family and friends caring for a loved one with Alzheimer's disease, members talk about a range of personal experiences and struggles. Activities are one of the top 10 topics most discussed.

Here are a few question-and-answer threads about activities:

"What are some meaningful activities for memory care residents?"

"Could Parks Departments offer dementia oriented programs?"

"What are some activities or crafts I can do with my grandma?"

Here are some conversations about activities:

"I am looking for some social activities that include both of us. like breakfast or lunch with other couples in a similar situation."

"Took Mum to Singing for the Brain today - our new Monday activity which she loves!"

"My hubby still does well, things he has done most his life, like golfing, doing hardest Sudoku. It feels like staying active and Sudoku has helped him!"
