Hi Danelle, clients in the first or second stage Dementia are mostly still functioning independently and able to do so many things. Here are a few recommendations. Physical: Table games, ball games, exercises, dancing. Encourage self-expression with painting, Mosaic, gardening, Stick Figure. Cognitive stimulation: Animal Idioms Quiz, and other activities you will find in ‘Ideas for Men’s Activities’.

We have discovered that some of our more able guys like to sort the jewelry out along with the ladies :) I purchased chunky junk jewelry from KMart and inexpensive jewelry drawer inserts from IKEA.
Also many guys like polishing shoes the old fashioned way.
