The Dementia Caregiver's Little Book of Hope [Kindle Edition]

A baby brings much comfort to those with dementia. All people are hard wired to love babies. It is almost instinctive.
Moving on from babies, what else can you offer a lower functioning late stage dementia person?
As I stated before taping into the senses of these dementia persons seem to work well. We talked about visually stimulating activities.
Actually a sensory activity should tap into all a person's senses. You should individualize the activity by focusing on a person's strongest sense. If you are doing this in a group, you will have to change the emphasis for each person. It is almost like doing one to one encounters within a group. This is fine. You can have certain parts of the group that touch everyone and tie everything together.
More ideas soon
