Small Group Activities for Dementia
One of the best and easiest ways to engage your dementia patients in meaningful activity on a regular basis is to introduce regular small group activities into your monthly calendar. These group activities are easy to present in half an hour or less, with little preparation or setup. Simply walk onto the dementia unit, ask any residents in the common area if they would like to participate and start the fun. See our "Benefits of Small Group Activities" article for more ideas about introducing dementia group activities.
Not just for facilities, these activities are loads of fun for everyone when the younger generation comes for a visit!
