Part Two of the Healthy Longevity Webinar Series, sponsored by Home Care Assistance
This webinar covers activities that provide a sense of purpose and enjoyment along with emotional support for individuals with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. Research suggests that physically and socially stimulating recreational activities can decrease problem behaviors, increase overall functioning, and slow the progression of cognitive decline; likewise, lack of pleasurable activities may further exacerbate the impairment associated with dementia. This webinar aims to improve attitude, mood, and quality of life for clients who have dementia, as well as provide for more meaningful engagement in life and a strengthened sense of dignity. It is crucial to avoid treating dementia clients as children; rather, we should listen to and respect them, and conversational stimulation can be part of all interactions you have with a client.
