After an Alzheimer’s or other dementia diagnosis, it is important to keep seniors actively engaged with life. The best activities are often hobbies and interests that provided pleasure in the past. People with Alzheimer’s Disease, who remain active, may have less anxiety and irritability.
Popular Senior Activities Include:
(Some activities may need to be modified for safety and the stage of Alzheimer’s Disease.)
- Singing and listening to music
- Arts and crafts including drawing, painting and knitting
- Gardening with a flower or herb box
- Cooking and baking
- Puzzles and games
- Walking in a park or while shopping
