Try Something New!!

Did you know . . .  that staying open to constantly learning new things and going through new experiences with a loved one who has dementia helps both the Caregiver and the loved one? Try to see and experience things from their perspective. Help them to learn (or even relearn) new things that are safe and appropriate for them and their cognitive abilities. In the process of doing this you just might find something new that you enjoy; something that you can share in common with your loved one. Remember, we really are never too old to try and learn new things! Having fun is not just for kids . . . it’s something that is timeless and good for all of us no matter our age, no matter our (changing?) abilities!
