Activity Benefits to the person with dementia



Benefits to the person with dementia
·        Activities can bring enjoyment and pleasure.

·       By remaining involved and active, a person with dementia can maintain their skills and independence for longer.

·      Activities can help people to express how they are feeling and relieve the symptoms of anxiety and depression.

·         Activities can increase social interaction and reduce isolation.

·     Sharing an activity with others may promote shared interests, increased interactions and understanding.

·       An activity may help a person feel important and valued because it relates to past roles and experiences, such as raising children or helping around the home.

·         Shared activity can promote a sense of belonging.

·   Leading a physically active lifestyle can have a significant impact on wellbeing.  Exercise is beneficial for physical and mental health and can improve the quality of life for people at all stages of dementia.
