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…

  1. 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.
