The German Alzheimer Society offers a number of suggestions and links for people supporting a person with dementia at home:
- The website provides a link to recommendations around hygiene provided by the Federal Centre for Health Education.
- The organisation suggests using music as tool to brighten the day and encourage movement. It suggests that simple musical tools, such as a rattle can easily be built out of a cardboard tube and dried lentils.
- The website provides a link to the initiative ‘Ageing in Balance’ provided by the Federal Centre for Health Education, which contains videos of exercises. Many of these can be performed at home.
- The article also points to further ideas that can be found through the app ‘Alzheimer and You – shaping everyday routines creatively’ provided by Alzheimer Society Germany.
