What a wonderful website! Just joined in and can`t stop reading.
The link above (download and print) on this page does not work for some reason. I hope it will be fixed soon so I can save it for further reference. Thank you.

I discovered another pairing activity that was highly satisfying for some of our dementia residents. I gave them a basket or box of clean socks (obtained from the laundry) and asked the residents to "help me" by sorting and pairing the socks. I had previously separated and mixed the socks up. Sorting socks is a familiar task for most women who were mothers and housewives so participating is natural for them.
