When looking for a dementia care program for your loved one, it is important to make sure the program you choose includes social and recreational activities. Cognitive stimulation is highly recommended for individuals with dementia. Your loved one might enjoy crossword puzzles, word find puzzles, or jigsaw puzzles. Some seniors prefer playing memory games online, while others prefer pursuing continuing education initiatives. For example, your loved one might enjoy learning to play the piano, or he or she might consider taking a course in a second language. These are all effective ways to keep the brain stimulated.
Combining cognitive stimulation games with social activities is also ideal for seniors in a dementia care program. Seniors might get together with their friends to play some board games or card games, for example.
