Dementia Nursing Care In Kansas City: Fun Picture Activities With Seniors

Dementia nursing care in Kansas City through Clover Care Home understands that life enrichment activities continue to create meaningful and fun experiences for our seniors. At Clover Care Home, we strive to provide these services to meet the needs of each individual and we’re committed to providing the best care for your loved one.

Life enrichment activities continue to provide accomplishment through joy and purpose in daily activities. In dementia patients, memory care and making sure our life enrichment activities help to increase memory function is important. Memories are remembered through touch, taste, smell, and sight. Sometimes looking at pictures can help bring back memories of years past, which helps to connect those with dementia to their loved ones.

Our dementia nursing care in Kansas City includes activities such as memory boxes. Memory boxes can include pictures of loved ones with personal information written on the back, old movie ticket stubs, old diaries, copies of favorite poems/readings, and newspaper clippings. You could even create a photobook dedicated to family trips, events, or anything your loved one enjoyed prior to dementia care in Kansas City.

Another fun project for someone in dementia care in Kansas City is to make a DIY picture puzzle of family members (including pets) during a fun activity. Just make sure that the memory is a special one for your family member.

Dementia nursing care in Kansas City should not focus on overly-complicated memory projects. Seniors living with dementia can get easily distracted or even frustrated if the project is too difficult to complete or has too many steps.

A simple project is to cut pictures from old magazines or calendars to create a fun scrapbook of things they like or are inspired by. It’s best to use source material that they are interested in. For example, if your loved one in dementia nursing care in Kansas City is an avid bird watcher, creating their own scrapbook of birds they have seen can be a fun and pretty way to catalog their interest.
