Have you ever wondered if creativity could be the key to unlocking cherished memories for your loved ones facing Alzheimer’s or dementia? At Rahma Garden Senior Living we believe in the power of tailored engaging activities designed to stimulate the mind and body. In this blog we will explore that every activity is not just an engagement but a step towards cultivating memories that endure.
Memory Care Tips to Get Started
Before we delve into the diverse activities aimed at enhancing memory let’s lay the groundwork for success:
Make the Activities Relatable
Your loved one has a rich tapestry of interests hobbies and passions. Memory-engaging activities at Rahma Garden are designed to be relatable and interesting. If gardening or nature brings them joy our activities might revolve around flora or simply spending time outdoors.
Avoid overstimulating memory by strategically choosing environments. Rahma Garden encourages activities in serene settings steering clear of crowded or noisy places. The goal is not to overwhelm but to engage in a helpful and natural manner — finding that ‘Goldilocks’ zone of challenge and enjoyment.
Work within Daily Living
Activities don’t always have to be planned. Rahma Garden promotes the relearning or practicing of everyday life skills. Encouraging your loved one to actively participate in daily tasks like choosing an outfit watering plants or setting the table not only stimulates memory but also forms a deeper bond.
Know their State and Stage
Adjusting memory activities according to the progression of dementia is crucial. In early stages Rahma Garden encourages outings to familiar places reinforcing habits and customs without introducing unnecessary stress.
