Hello thinktank,
I am currently working with an elder with some increasing cognitive impairment. Though I’ve asked what kind of things he is interested in, and we have done many fun activities together over the past year, he has seemed to lose all interest in any activities. This is accompanied by some mental confusion (dementia?) whereby he becomes confused about his surroundings and what he is doing as well. He has mentioned just being ready for the end and to be at peace. I would like to support him in the best way possible...any suggestions out there for working with elders in this stage? I’m not sure if I should go more sensory based since our physical and now seemingly mental faculties are becoming limited...any advice welcome. Thank you.
