When you run a group activity, you want to know whether it was succseeful or not.

If the group member is low functioning with dementia, it is sometimes hard to judge this.

Remember it is the process not the product that counts when you do any activity especially a craft or cooking activity.

Ask yourself these questions:

Did the group member have fun?
Did the group member smile?
Did the group member laugh?
Did the group member socialize?
Was this activity meaningful to the group member?
Can you answer yes to one of these questions?
Then the group was a success.
