Welcome to Best Alzheimer's Products!

Activities

One concern of many caregivers is that some of the recommended activities for people with Alzheimer's are demeaning to the patient. Alison Mahoney addresses this concern in a study published in the American Journal of Alzheimer's Disease and Other Dementias. Alzheimer's ActivitiesShe maintains that, "stage-appropriate activities do not demean dementia patients when caregivers present play as a legitimate recreation and create a sense of fun and interest."

Our experience is in agreement with this view. Bernice truly enjoys the activities that Holly does with her, even though they were designed for a much younger crowd. And that enjoyment is benefiting her physically, emotionally, and cognitively.

  10. Art-Omino

    ART-OMINO FINE ART

    $21.00

    Plays like the classic "dominos" game with works of fine art on the playing pieces.

    Art-Omino Fine Arts contains 30 rectangular cards with two pictures each. One player begins by placing a card upright on the table. The players alternately extend the line of play with a matching image on one of the two ends of his or her card. The game typically ends when one player places their last card, but the setup can vary according to the cognitive abilities of the players, making it an ideal game for this group. People in early stages can play following the traditional rules. Later, play with cards, and it can be enjoyable to just look at all the cards to find matches, and talk about the art.

    The game comes with instructions as well as information about the art depicted on the playing pieces.

    This is one of those activities that can be enjoyed at several cognitive levels: as a memory game for people with early memory loss, and as a matching activity or even a conversation starter for people in later stages. Learn More
