Our Alzheimer's residents really love being able to remember words. It makes them feel proud that they have not forgotten everything yet!

Melissa 20th Jun 2019 Dance Teacher For Seniors
I teach dance to seniors with varying physical & cognitive challenges. For an alphabet game we make body shapes of the letters of the alphabet starting with the first letter of their first name. Staff & I help when needed. Then we move on to their favorite animals, making the shape of the first letter of their favorite animal. We all have fun with this activity. A wonderful book that I show them before we do this lesson plan is: The Human Alphabet/Pilobolus. Roaring Book Press, New Milford, Connecticut

We play this regularly, I make a new list of questions from household items, things in your bag, toolbox, car, office, kitchen appliances... you can make it endless fun...
The residents love the challenge at happy hour. Divide tables as with trivia so others can help to make up teams. Have a volunteer, staff member or family members to help each table they love to get in on it too.

Great for a laugh and they really love the competitiveness!!!

I like doing surnames are also a profession or linked to their background & what someone might have done for a living, like abbot, archer, baker, carpenter, driver, English, fisher, gardener, hunter, Brewer, Butcher, Carter, Clark, Cooper, Cook, Dyer, Farmer, Faulkner, Fisher, Fuller, Glover, Head, Hunt, Judge, Mason, Page, Parker, Potter, Sawyer, Slater, Smith, Taylor, Thatcher, Turner, Weaver, Woodman, and Wright - I have a list of each of the alphabet and do a mime for some, and we chat about their names and their partner's names
