Easter Gift Appropriate for Seniors and Patients with Alzheimer'sEaster is a significant and joyous holiday for Christians. Seniors who are more sedentary or people with dementia will enjoy the Praise and Glory book, with familiar hymns and vivid photos and depictions of faith. It taps into memories, both physical - for instance the photos of praying hands and of the cross - and musical - the words of the hymns Jesus Loves Me, How Great Thou Art, and more. The book pages are sturdy to allow repeated handling and the book lies flat for easy viewing. The large print also helps people with vision loss.
Therapist Tip: Familiar music that was learned early in life and heard many times over will be recalled by patients even into the late stages of dementia.
