Sharing memories or reminiscing about the past is an enjoyable way to connect with someone that has Alzheimer’s or dementia. When it comes to dementia, most people lose their short-term memory, but can still recall older memories.
There are four gentle reminiscence therapy activities that can help seniors with memory problems:
- Listen to their favorite music
- Look at photos, keepsakes, or magazines
- Smell familiar scents and taste favorite foods
- Enjoy tactile activities like painting, pottery, or other crafts
