Make a Difference - Gift Ideas for Dementia Patients

Dementia Patient

Seniors might be older to react, it might be hard for them to register, even they have problems remembering things, but you can make a difference for them in this Christmas. No matter whether they remember Christmas or not, your surprise gift will make them happy. Moreover, it would be indeed beneficial for the mental health of the patients.

If senior adults are suffering from Dementia, Alzheimer’s or any kind of memory-related problems, a memory care program in OKC would be the best gift for them.

Here are some tips on the gifts that you can present seniors depending on the stages of their illness as all gifts would not be suitable for all patients.

Early Stages of Dementia and Alzheimer’s

At the early stage of memory-related diseases, crossword puzzles, activity books etc. will be useful for older patients. You can also make their Christmas special with classic movie DVDs or a streaming service. You can also gift them a helpful thing like memory phone that combines photos and contact information.

A Table Clock

The Middle Stages

For patients with memory diseases at middle stages, a clock can be a useful gift. The clock should have the time in large font and date and months as well. The feature of automatic nightlights can be an added advantage of the present to help them with a clear idea of the day and time.

The Later Stages

When the seniors reach the later stages of dementia or Alzheimer’s, don’t think that the gift will be lame for them. You can still find useful gifts for them which can bring a smile to their face. It is better to avoid complicated gifts for which they have to use their brain. Warm blankets, bathrobe of a nice color or the color they like most can be good. You can serve them with sweet treats. The idea of clothes can also be nice. In addition to all these, you can include family videos, digital photo frame, slippers, housekeeping services, pre-stamped cards and envelopes etc.
