There are a number of activities that can be done in the October with those who have dementia whether they live at home or at a long term care facility. Many of the activities can be done with other long term care residents as well. Remember any activity that makes people think will go along way in slowing the decline of dementia. In addition sparking conversation as these suggested ideas do, also help to keep a dementia person's mind active and slows down the disease process.
October is also pizza month. You could have a pizza party. You can make English muffin pizzas. If you do not want to do any cooking, you can talk about pizza toppings. See how many you and the group can name.
Another big event happening in October is the World Series. In fact October is World Series Month.
This is a good opportunity to talk about baseball one last time. Talk about favorite baseball teams, teams that might make it to the World Series, baseball trivia, etc. Of course do not forget to sing "Take Me Out to the Ballgame".
