Hi guys i work with middle to late stage dementia. Alot of residents are sleepy, or they find things hard to understand. Any ideas on any activities that might be worth a try. I find it frustrating when other carers just sit there. Many thanks Maggie

Maggie, I work in memory care at my facility. The way that I do any type of trivia for the later stage is to read the question and then give them just 2 choices. Sometimes they say that they don't have any idea and I just simply ask them to just choose one answer. If someone answers wrong I don't say no that's wrong. I go to the next person and ask them. A lot of the time the next person can answer the question by process of elimination. If after two or three residents have answered if the right answer hasn't been found then I just simply tell them and praise them for trying to answer. After I tell them many of them say oh yeah that's right. We do a lot of trivia from the bible. Most late stage residents can remember things from the bible when they can't remember anything. One day we were doing bible trivia and one of my residents who doesn't talk and when she does everything is jumbled, began to answer the questions with no problem.

I downloaded the game. Printed page 2-5 as the first page was instructions on print both sides and then laminated them. Went over well in both Assisted Living and Memory Care. Thank you a great game.

I played this yesterday and it was a mixed response, i did replace some of the people as im in the UK and we didnt know who regis kelly was, but other than that it was a good game. I did it in a one to one setting as well, as some residents dont like joining in the group game and this worked very well.
