The Alzheimer’s Society has published a revised guide to activities for people with dementia aimed at healthcare professionals.
“Taking part: activities for people with dementia” is an updated version of the charity’s 2002 book of activities.
The new book, which costs £30, includes more than 80 ideas such as themed-day events, using media in reminiscence and games for pairs or groups.
Helen Helmer, publications manager at Alzheimer’s Society, said: “Getting people with dementia involved with activities is proven to make a huge difference to their sense of wellbeing.
“This new resource will help health and social care professionals enable people with dementia keep physically and mentally active as well as helping people express themselves.”
