1  CRAFTING FOR GOOD AND NOT EVIL / Crafty Charitable/Social Causes / Re: Activities for people with dementia (and other disabilities related to aging)??? on: June 02, 2011 01:45:28 PM
I am a Life Enrichment Manager for individuals with dementia/Alzheimer's Disease in Louisville, KY.  Order an Alzheimer's Resource Kit for your grandmother from http://www.sehealth.org/foundation/SoutheastHEALTH.aspx?nd=400 .  They are free due to donations and grants and come with Twiddles, which are amazing for keeping cold and hardworking hands busy and warm.

I made stationery on Tuesday with a resident using 1/2 cup of water, a teaspoon of sugar, dish soap, and food coloring.  You blow bubbles with a straw in a bowl of these ingredients and have her place the paper/envelope in the bubbles.  She can give these to loved ones as a gift and they can, in turn, write her letters, helping her feel less isolated.

She's a lucky lady to have a granddaughter trying to help her hands keep busy and happy.
