Activities of the week for Men with Dementia and Alzheimer’s
Activities have no right or wrong way to do them. The main purpose of the ideal is to have fun, satisfying, and boost self-esteem. Engaging activities can also be a good alternative to using medications that reduce agitation, challenging behaviour, and depression.
1. Attach Fittings and Pipes
Get varying lengths of inexpensive PVC pipes, fittings and T-joins to remind them of the days being handy around the house. Ask the hardware store if they have any spear pieces to donate to your cause.
Remind them of the days when the kitchen or bathroom sink needed to change.
2. Sorting hardware parts or roll coins
Another way to enjoy handy activities is to have them sort inexpensive hardware parts like these nuts, bolts and washers.
Do you remember the days of saving your coins and rolling them up to buy something special?
Sorting a big pile of coins gives them a reminder of when they used to manage household finances.
