Dementia Assisted Living In Kansas City: Holiday Activities

Dementia assisted living in Kansas City understands that the holidays can be a challenging season for seniors living with dementia, however, there are some great seasonal activities available to celebrate the season. Oftentimes, seniors with dementia can feel abandoned, unloved and alone, so being intentional in creating holiday activities for seniors with dementia is important.

Many seniors in our dementia assisted living in Kansas City home have trouble adjusting to living away from their families, especially during the holidays. They miss their homes and the memories of spending the holidays with loved ones. As a family member, the holidays are an opportune time to visit, spend time with your loved one and create new memories together.

One of the easiest holiday activities is to listen to holiday music. Music is well-known as a great form of memory therapy for seniors. Music is often linked to memories and emotions, and finding some of their favorite holiday music to accompany your gathering makes these moments special.

Any form of baking during the holidays is always a fun activity for a senior in a dementia assisted living in Kansas City home. Seniors who struggle with cognitive impairment find baking their favorite holiday treats with family members to be a favorite activity. Cookies are always part of the holiday season. Finding your loved one’s favorite holiday cookie (especially one with simply instructions/steps) might help to bring back memories for them, and creates new ones for yourselves.

As always, the holiday season isn’t complete without a few decorations. Helping to decorate your loved one’s space in their dementia assisted living in Kansas City home helps them to feel loved and creates an atmosphere of cheer. Just make sure that your decorations are shatterproof, do not have blinking or flashing lights (they can be disorienting) or moveable figures, and make sure to keep walkways and floors clear of any decorations.

Holiday traditions and activities can be adapted in countless ways, and flexibility can help ensure your loved one is healthier and happier, more active and stays engaged. Whether you are able to visit along with the whole family or it’s just you alone, you can do a lot to ensure your loved one isn’t spending the holidays alone.
