Making Mother’s Day meaningful for a mother suffering from Alzheimer’s disease may be a challenge for a daughter, son, or other family member.
Many individuals with impaired memories often respond to past events and to people they love.
Here are 4 activities you can try…
- Bring Something Special To Eat:
A favourite dessert, flavour or special meal from the past might trigger a positive food memory
2. Familiar Objects:
Try to use photographs, videos, or other familiar items as a way to initiate conversation.
3. Play Music:
Music often provides a way to connect, even after verbal communication has become difficult due to cognitive decline.
4. Connection Through Activity:
Try to connect by building a scrapbook together or playing a familiar game.
Enjoy making memories together this Mother’s Day.
