Activities to do with a Loved One Who Has Alzheimer’s Disease

It’s important to spend quality time with a family member or friend who has Alzheimer’s disease or a related dementia. This can help improve their quality of life and manage behavior changes that may come with the disease. It can also help grow and strengthen their connection to you. Shared activities are a great way to have meaningful time.

Choose safe and enjoyable activities that:

  • Can be done around the house, such as feeding or brushing a pet.
  • Encourage movement, such as stretching or yoga.
  • Engage the mind, like puzzles or board games.
