Golden Carers has made creating our monthly rosters so much easier with fantastic ideas, games and quizzes to keep my Day Club members entertained and the brain ticking over. Thank you, the membership fee even for our small volunteer group is money well spent. :)
Does anyone have activity suggestions for an older adults that are Deaf-Blind and has dementia? The activities will be one-on-one in the home.
Guessing different smells - coffee- peppermint etc ..
Stacking with large “lego” bricks or other building blocks.
Playing with clay - play dough (rolling & cutting out shapes)
Pet the dog - or cat - use a large stuffed animal or one of those dementia pets.
Finger painting (might be crazy messy- but maybe with pudding? Just in case it is ingested).
Activity blankets - the kind with zippers & snaps and hooks to fiddle with.
Music with a good “beat” cd player on a table? I wonder if they can “hear” the vibrations thought a table? clap along with the songs - their favorite music?
There are a lot of good ideas in this list of comfort activities - hand/ arm massage sounds very nice and relaxing (maybe with a favorite scented lotion too).
