Hi everyone! I run the activities/engagement program at an assisted living and memory care. I am certified in dementia care, but am having trouble finding items that will work for one of my memory care residents. He walks a lot, is nonverbal, and is very strong! I had gotten a "tool box" with all these little doors and locks that he could open and close, but he pulled it apart. I got a giant stress ball and he tried to take a bite out of it.

He really likes to hold things as he walks (and it's a good intervention to give him something to hold so he releases his tight grip on someone/something else)...I'm just having trouble finding something that he won't immediately pull apart. Any suggestions are appreciated!
