I am new to the sight so was wondering can anyone recommend me any of the activities i can do with an elderly blind person with limited mobility and dementia too.
Thank you for any advice,

Hi Naomi
The first thing that comes to mind is sensory activities
Of course not all of these activities are appropriate
Also, music activities are good
Specifically, What does this person like or liked to do
can you adapt any Activities used to like to now
Exercise is also good, but again you will have to adapt, depending on the mobility issues

Hi Naomi,

Have you considered using audio books/music?
How about using a dvd exercises...see if they are able to follow instructions with your help?
Take them for a w/c walk maybe ?

Our blind resident loves music and attends all our singing performances and singing seems to settle her
