How to Help People Find Their Sense of Purpose

Doing Buddy Reading with kindergarten children just across the road from our facility gave our residents a deep sense of purpose even to our dementia resident. At the end of the school year, the children and school gave a "thank you assembly" for our residents.

How to Decrease Problem Behaviors

A very informative article. Thank you for sharing.
Another way of decreasing problem behaviour is ball room dancing. I find this very effective where everyone loves to sing and dance especially their old favourite music.
