Creative Ways to Support Your Senior with Alzheimer’s

Creative Ways to Support Your Senior with Alzheimer’s

It’s Alzheimer’s and Brain Awareness Month, and thus, Intrinsic Home Care, Inc., your friend and loving provider of home care services, would like share with you a list of fun and new ways to support your loved ones diagnose with Alzheimer’s disease.

  • Music
    According to experts from the Alzheimer’s Association, music has healing properties that play an important role in creating meaningful experiences for people with dementia. Even patients with more advanced memory loss can find themselves singing to their favorite songs.
  • Gardening
    Planting flowers in raised beds or containers can be achieved even by seniors with more advanced diseases. Get your loved one some seedlings today!
  • Aromatherapy
    This form of therapy has become popular with Alzheimer’s and memory care centers. This is because scents trigger memories and can also boost or soothe a patient’s moods.
  • Animals
    Having companion care in Illinois can be all the company you need, but having a cute little friend can help older adults feel happier and more engaged. The very act of petting a puppy helps calm agitation and anxiety in older adults.

Test out each of these alternatives to see which works best for your loved one.
