Plenty of memory training to choose from
Dementia care includes many elements, which support memory rehabilitation for dementia and Alzheimer’s prevention. We use music therapy in its various forms and handcrafts to support hand coordination. We play games which are suitable for elderly with dementia. For example Memoera and board games such as Chess, Bingo and Mahjong.
Board and brain games help activate the memory. Familiar games like Mahjong is played with tiles featuring Chinese characters which help train memory. Recent studies show that Mahjong is an excellent mental exercise for memory training. It improves memory and reduces the risk of dementia and memory loss.
Games are a challenging and meaningful activity. Winning will bring a feeling of success and well-being. Dementia care and brain training bring joy and fun. Some of the games can be played individually, and others in a group. Playing together enhance the sense of community and allow more active interaction between the seniors and caregivers. Skills which are forgotten can be re-activated through games like Memoera in a fun way.
The importance of mind and body connection for dementia care
Dance therapy reduces stress and anxiety such as agitation or frustration. Mood swings can be a result of sudden recollection of past disturbing events.
Challenging behaviour is quite common among the elderly with dementia. Dance therapy relaxes and boosts self-confidence and self-esteem. It reduces Alzheimer’s symptoms and problems with memory loss.
