Alzheimer’s Care Home Kansas City Life Enrichment For People With Memory Loss

An Alzheimer’s care home Kansas City provides seniors with dementia a better way of life. Alzheimer’s disease, the most common form of dementia, can impair an individual’s memory as well as their behavior. Life enrichment activities can help those living with Alzheimer’s disease and other types of dementia express themselves and stay more engaged with others.

For people with memory loss, just managing everyday life skills becomes challenging as the condition progresses. Their needs can change, sometimes daily or even hourly. People with the disease may not be able to communicate. A personalized continuum of care helps caregivers understand each individual as they are today, moment-to-moment, and find ways to address their specific needs that will improve their daily life, one of which is to tap into the person’s memories while they are still intact.

Although a person with dementia experiences short-term memory loss, they will usually retain many memories from past years. Alzheimer’s care home Kansas City incorporates those memories into structuring personalized activities that help keep seniors connected. Helping someone in the early stages of Alzheimer’s, mild memory loss or cognitive impairment by participation in small group activities like art or music is important for sensory stimulation. 

Music is a wonderful activity to help seniors with Alzheimer’s dementia, with its universal ability to boost mood, reduce agitation and increase engagement. For instance, playing their favorite songs, or gathering with others to listen to music they enjoyed in their younger days helps reduce stress and makes life more enjoyable. Also, have family members bring old family photographs or videos; it’s a great way to make their day brighter and more meaningful! Triggering a senior’s memories helps them stay connected with the world around them.

Getting some fresh air and a little exercise is much better than sitting in their room. Short walks around the grounds is a great activity – and good for their health. If they are able, take it further with trips to the beauty shop or attending a church service. There are numerous helpful life enrichment activities that are possible with Alzheimer’s care home Kansas City.
