Ideas for people with dementia and easy crafts?
Im an activities director for elderly people with dementia. This is my first time doing this line of work and I need some craft ideas that are easy. These people have mild to severe dementia, so these crafts have to be simple.
I am usually good with finding sites on the internet, but the sites for easy crafts usually take me to a web page with other links or sites with articles and advertisements. If anyone has a good website for easy crafts that would be great!
Any types of crafts that are easy to do and do not use small decorations (as in buttons, small beads, etc…). Projects that children would do… this does not infantile the elderly. It helps them maintain their dignity since it is based at a level where they can achieve the goals as opposed to setting expectations that are too difficult for them.
GOOD IDEAS SO FAR, BUT CAN ANYONE PROVIDE A GOOD WEBSITE?
