Making Waves

Who says that Making Waves isn't a good thing? Our Making Waves small group program is a great way for three to six dementia patients to exercise their arms and upper body while having fun. Sitting in a small circle, each participant grabs a handle or two on the small, six foot parachute and start making waves. Throw a ball onto the 'chute and bounce it, roll it and keep it moving without dropping. Add more balls for more challenge and fun.

Suitable for Small Groups

Many facilities already have a 12 foot or even 20 foot parachute for large group activities, but that is generally not suited to dementia patients. Using the Making Waves smaller 6 foot parachute, it is easier to gather three to six residents in a smaller area and have some fun in an active program without a lot of preparation.

The package includes a 6 foot parachute, 4 small balls and a 12" beach ball along with complete instructions - everything that you need for a fun and active program for people with dementia or Alzheimer's.

it was very good activity for a group of seniors, i didn't expect them to enjoy it, but they did. I was specially surprised about the residents who wouldn't move their arms otherwise, did everything to keep the ball on the parachute, it was very cute. I simply enjoyed watching them doing this activity. (Posted on 11/29/2017)
