I so activities in several adult family homes. One home has a deaf resident with dementia. I do not know sign language. I am looking for ideas of activities to do with her.

Hi Beth
Are you looking for ideas to do one on one or do you want to include her in a group?
Here are some ideas
Use cue cards
Use some techniques that you use with those who have aphasia

Maybe you could try a tasting session - make use of other senses - try the biscuit quiz with samples of them - they can bring back great memories for people!
