Details

Participating in certain activities and hobbies can be challenging for individuals living with cognitive impairments. Studies have shown that when people living with dementia receive cognitive stimulation and have opportunities to socialize and connect with others, their overall well-being improves. The Spark Your Mind activity book is of high quality in terms of its conception and design. We appreciate the adult-appropriate themes and appearance. It's a great way to engage with loved ones!

Tips for Completing the Spark Your Mind Activities

  • Choose Your Moment: Experts generally recommend doing these activities and games in the morning, between 9 and 10 a.m., when concentration is at its highest.
  • Offer Encouragement and Support: If the person you are accompanying is not able to do the activity, enjoy the time you have together and discuss the pictures, or move on to another activity.
  • Ask Open-Ended Questions and Adapt the Activity if Needed: Use a sheet of paper to hide a part of the game if the person seems distracted by the items on the page or if the activity is too long for them. Use a pencil and an eraser; feel free to erase and start again!
