Social Engagement Opportunities
Text Size controlsNormal font sizeMedium font sizeLarge font size

A person with Alzheimer's or other dementia doesn't have to give up the activities that he or she loves. Many activities can be modified to the person's ability. In addition to enhancing quality of life, activities can reduce behaviors like wandering or agitation.In the early stages of dementia, the person may withdraw from activities he or she previously enjoyed. It is important to help the person remain engaged. Having an open discussion around any concerns and making slight adjustments can make a difference. For example, a large social gathering may be overwhelming, but the person may be able to interact more successfully in smaller groups.As Alzheimer's progresses, you may need to make other adjustments to the activity. For more information please contact Wendy Betley at 414.479.8800 or wbetley@alz.org.
