How to improve memory in Dementia Patients
Posted .July 31, 2015

 

  • Listen to Music. Music has sometime the ability to take us back in time, evoking memories and feelings from the past. Music can help not only with cognitive skills, but also with speech, stress reduction, and socialization. Many memory care assisted living communities incorporate music or sing-alongs into their daily activities.
  • Look at photographs. Show some old photo albums next time you go to visit your loved one, encouraging your loved one to take part in the conversation.
  • Read a book together. Bring your loved one’s favorite book with you when you visit and read it to them. Keep them engaged as though it was the first time they’ve ever heard the story.
  • Play a game. Simple games, like putting together a puzzle or helping them complete a word search or “find and seek” picture puzzle. Allow your loved one to do the majority of the work, but offer your assistance if they begin to show signs of frustration.
  • Watch old family videos. For sure you have a collection of old family videos, Watch them with your loved one. Actually seeing these memories right in front of them, much like looking at photographs, could help bring back long-forgotten thoughts and feelings.
