Enriching activities are important for everyone whether or not you have Alzheimer’s. When used in dementia care, the results have a positive effect on the care partnership.
However, staying creative and being persistent in finding activities that put a smile on your loved one’s face can be quite a challenge. You are the one person they feel most comfortable around, and as a result, most of their enrichment will come from doing things with you.
In this workshop, Rachael Wonderlin returns to the Together in This Empowerment series.
Rachael has a Master’s in Gerontology and works in long-term dementia care. She also runs her own blog, Dementia By Day.com.
During this interactive workshop, Rachael taught tips & strategies on how activities geared towards your loved one’s interests will improve their overall well-being.
Enriching activities include the following benefits:
- Fosters a rewarding relationship
- Lifts their spirit
- Enhances their quality of life
- Creates a sense of purpose
- Boosts self-esteem
- Rekindles lost memories
- Reduces behavioral issues
