Sensory Pouches for Dementia Care

Do you just put a little bit of gel in the sensory pooches ?

I do DT as well as a carer

Hi, I would like some ideas for a gentleman that is bedridden, he has a progressive brain disease which has created Dementia. Because we spend 24 hr round the clock assistance I would like some ideas on activities to stimulate him when he is awake. He doesn't talk, you can work out when he likes and dislike something, his hands are quite stiff and tight, any ideas would be great,

Many thanks Jenny

Sensory Pouches for Dementia Care

I would like to try these as well, I have a man with progressive brain disease and has caused dementia, he is bed ridden and we have so much time with him I would like to find things to stimulate him when he is awake. He doesnt speak. Does the hair gel leak out ?

15 Ways to Practise Self Care and Avoid Burnout

I feel I’m slowly burning out, I don’t take much time for myself. Usually money commitments. It’s usually work then home. I love working I’m the oldest one at work and don’t plan to retire but I either don’t make the time or I don’t have the money, I’m working hard so I don’t have lots of commitments when I do retire. I did retire once and Didn’t like it and am still working at 70, my friends and family are off holidaying or working
