Almost a Perfect Day dementia workshop

The idea behind “ALMOST A PERFECT DAY”  is when caring for a loved one with dementia at home, you most likely are not going to experience perfection every day. However, striving for close to excellence is realistic.

When you create a schedule, consider creating a theme based upon the individual’s personal interests and history. Using a theme-based schedule makes the day more interesting, creative, and reminiscent. This option can benefit the individual significantly because having a prior connection with theme subject matter can make memory recall more possible. Dementia patients feel more secure when they are within a positive and familiar environment setting, and this can lead to more interaction and self-expression. Communication is better.
