Hello everyone! :wave:

I understand the importance of incorporating engaging activities into the lives of seniors with dementia to promote their overall health and well-being. Here are some recommendations for active games that can bring joy to their daily routines:

  1. Chair Exercises: Incorporate seated exercises tailored to their mobility level. This not only promotes physical activity but also helps maintain flexibility and coordination.
  2. Balloon Volleyball: A fun and low-impact activity that encourages movement. Using a soft balloon, seniors can enjoy a game of seated volleyball, enhancing hand-eye coordination.
  3. Memory Games: Engage their cognitive abilities with memory games. You can use large, colorful cards with matching images or create a personalized version with familiar pictures.
  4. Music and Movement: Incorporate music into their routine. Dancing or simply moving to music can uplift spirits and provide a joyful experience.
  5. Gardening Activities: For those who enjoy the outdoors, consider simple gardening tasks. Planting flowers or herbs in accessible pots can be a therapeutic and fulfilling activity.

Remember to tailor activities to individual preferences and abilities. It’s essential to create a supportive and inclusive environment that fosters a sense of accomplishment and happiness. If you have any specific questions or need more personalised recommendations, feel free to ask!
