Doing activities is a form of therapy for people with dementia. It is the 'use it or lose it' phenomenon. If the person does not use the abilities that remain, they will lose those abilities at a faster rate. Research shows the benefit of Alzheimer's activities, which includes slower rate of cognitive decline, less loss of self-care abilities, and increased quality of life. In the study, the effects of the cognitive stimulation activities was greater than the effects of medication. Consider MindStart products to provide important cognitive stimulation and benefits.
