More about craft projects for those with dementia

Activities directors, other healthcare professionals and caregivers, we have been discussing a patriotic craft for the Fourth of July. Here is more information.

The above craft can be done for any patriotic activity simply by changing the words or not having any words at all.

Make sure when you do a project that each step is simple

Do a project over a number of days so people do not lose interest during the activity.

If you are doing it in one day, then take breaks and do trivia or singing in between steps

Have a volunteer complete most of the project and have group members complete the project

For a great resource for those with dementia, caregivers and healthcare professionals,
