Making Waves

100% of 100

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.

  • Great upper body and arm exercise
  • Helps with dexterity and coordination
  • Small group activity ideal for dementia patients
  • Can be played by three to six participants

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.

Suitable For:

Almost anyone with dementia or Alzheimer's who has the mobility to hold one or two handles on the parachute.

Package Includes:
  • 6 foot ripstop nylon parachute with double reinforced handles
  • 4 small balls
  • 16" beach ball
  • Full instructions

This product is proudly assembled and packaged by the people of The Ark, a community organization dedicated to providing services for persons with special challenges.
