Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Disorders: Activities

 

When caring for individuals with Alzheimer’s disease, you must ensure that you are creating opportunities for the person to enhance their sense of dignity and self-esteem and providing a sense of security and enjoyment through social engagement and meaningful activities (Alzheimer’s Association, 2006). In this module, you will learn about strategies for creating meaningful and engaging activities as well as types of activities the person with Alzheimer’s disease may engage in. Note: While this course refers to Alzheimer’s disease, the principles and concepts discussed can be applied any type of dementia. Additionally, while some of the material in this course is specific to activities in a nursing facility or assisted living community, many of the concepts can be applied in home care settings as well.
