Dementia Activities- Fun Things You Can Do

There are a lot of different dementia activities you can easily do with your loved one.

  • playing favorite songs aloud;
  • taking early walks where birds are greeting the new day;
  • viewing familiar musicals, operas, and artists together; and
  • visiting waterfronts to hear the sound of the waves or lapping water.
  • flower arranging,
  • baking and bread making,
  • folding fresh laundry,
  • coffee breaks,
  • cooking family favorites together,
  • throwing a barbecue,
  • trips to the chocolatier, the local cafe, and bakery.
  • Magazine dreaming: Clipping photographs of nice things from magazines and pasting them into collage form on plain paper.
  • Armchair travel: Slowly reviewing professional photography books of beautiful scenery in foreign places and discussing them.
  • Jewelry making: Stringing together simple necklaces or friendship bracelets.
  • Papier mache: Making festive keepsakes and ornaments freehand or with molds normally used for cupcakes, candy or soap. These can be painted once dried.
  • Beauty makeovers: Give Mom’s self-esteem a boost by having her makeup done professionally –for free. Major department stores normally have makeup counters for some of the best brands that perform this service to showcase the quality of their products.
