Activities for Alzheimer’s patients tend to change as the disease progresses, such as limiting concentration and causing difficulties in following directions. These factors can turn simple activities into daily challenges. Take stock, and examine the person’s past activities and hobbies and then figure out how to adapt or simplify these activities to match the patient’s current abilities. Focus on offering guidance and supervision while doing things with the patient. In most cases, you’ll need to show the person step-by-step directions. Simple tasks as sweeping or dusting can help the person with Alzheimer’s disease experience a sense of accomplishment and satisfaction.
