Great ideas from Susan caregiver & volunteer

You may be asking how would I play these memory games with my mother or father?

I discovered a Secret for patients success while testing MatchMate, my first Memory Exercise Card Game.

I had to throw out the rules and adjust the game to the level of person with dementia, in order for everyone to feel good and for me to see a smile. Sometimes that is starting with 3 cards, instructions with memory exercise games.

I have seen frustration when playing with too many cards and you want to avoid that. The end result, they do not want to play PERIOD

I developed these memory exercise card games to be used as mind stimulating activities for Alzheimer’s, dementia, elderly and stroke patients. These Activities and games are for your loved one to enjoy, not become frustrated and an enjoyable way for you to interact with your loved one.

Tip – If your loved one does NOT want to play cards, talk about the great pictures triggering emotions and memories. Go with the flow. . .

Many activities/games for Alzheimer’s, Dementia and stroke patients such as puzzles and card games are too difficult for people with dementia and special needs.

Memory Exercise Cards were developed specifically for the elderly, Alzheimer’s, Dementia and stroke patients and their needs by Memory Jogging Puzzles in 2008.

Keep in mind, your loved one will lose focus easily, keep it short and sweet.

Memory Jogging Puzzles and Memory Exercise Card Games with Norman Rockwell and Sarah Stilwell Weber illustrations are an EXCELLENT CHOICE for activities if your loved one has Alzheimer’s, Dementia or has suffered a stroke.

Playing cards was a favorite pastime or hobby of many elderly making your interaction easier. Putting together yesterday’s hobby with fun, familiar and family oriented images of Norman Rockwell and Sarah S. Weber reminds me of a Oreo Cookie. They love it!

Caregivers Kit Testimonial. . .

from Birdie Scroggins AD, CAP
I worked in a Nursing Home for 27 years before retiring. I worked in the Activity Department and began using the memory jogging puzzles after my retirement when I started Volunteering at Day Care and Retirement Homes.The caregiver kit has been the best thing that I have ever seen to keep a residents attention and get them to reminisce about themselves and others from the past years.I would recommend every Activity Director have this kit in there department for a weekly activity or an extra, for I know it is a crowd pleaser and will put smiles on everyone’s faces.

It’s easy, makes everyone talk & visit with one another.

Thank you so much, Birdie

What I learned. . .  Best approach working with elderly.

{Karen, The nursing home is in the process of changing her medicine so I have not been able to work with her with all the products I purchased.

However, the song book has given her pleasure and we enjoy singing the songs together.  You were correct in advising me to go with the six piece puzzle.  She is 96 and I hope to give her some peaceful moments with your products.

I only wish I had been aware of your products before her condition became so critical.  She does not know who I am but knows I care about her.

Your products also help me in a very difficult time.

I am able to sing songs she remembers,  even with her eyes closed.  She will open them briefly and look at the pictures.

I am able to talk about the pictures even when her eyes are closed.  I hope to do the same with the matching cards.  T

hank you again for developing products for people in her condition.

Because of your products, I still have short periods of time that we can communicate about things she can understand.  Thank you}

Dear Barbara,

I am glad you enjoy singing the songs and talking about the pictures. Your mother may not be able to respond but I’m sure you are giving her peace and comfort.

She may not recognize your face or name and that’s okay.

I personally feel, your touch and voice give her a wonderful feeling of comfort and joy.

She knows you are someone who loves her very much and not a stranger… dry your tears.

You are doing much more than you realize and I am grateful to be apart of it.

Thank you for taking the time and sharing. takeCare of yourself. karen

Residents concentrate on
Memory Match Game

Playing cards was a favorite pastime of our elderly. Many recall this hobby, eagerly sharing fond memories.

Memory Match Games are similar to go fish… but played with a twist. We threw out the rules. Instruction card included.

Remember for elderly with special needs to feel achievement and pride, activities for people with Dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease must be age appropriate and played at their level.

If activities are too difficult your loved one, they will feel embarrassed and want to quit.

They are just like you and I, when something is too difficult… sometimes we want to find something else to do. You gotta know when to fold em.
