Activities for residents with dementia. I work as a activity coordinator and am finding it increasingly difficult on our memory floor. Most of the residents are in the late stages and spend most of the time asleep. I do a lot of one to ones doing various things. Would be grateful if anyone has any suggestions for me to try. Thank you. Sue

Hi Sue, we have a lot of wanderers within our home. What I have found really useful is to set up various different tables with activities which catch their eyes and attention. As for those sleepers maybe try leaving an activity in front of them so that when they do eventually wake it may draw their attention to whatever it is you put in front of them - music and sing alongs also tend to wake up the residents!!
