Hi I am activity co ordinator I have a gentleman who has alzheimer's he has very little communication skills left and tends to pace up and down the ward area. He has a very short attention span to a paoiny I can not do any activities with him. He has a staff member with him at all times as he can be very intrusive and has a tendency to grab hold of people. Staff at times struggle with him as he exhosts them out. I would like your advice and knowledge in finding activities that might cater to these kind of behaviours. So far I have only managed one activity witch was catching a ball and this lasted no more than 3 4 minutes. I am trying to find a therapeutic balance for this individual.
