There is surprisingly very little information out there about
art projects for Alzheimer patients.
In the few sources I have found,
collaging is mentioned as an activity that they enjoy.
We cut small holiday related pictures and words
out of magazines and old holiday cards,
and had them pick their favorites to glue on heavy paper.
Pat clearly loves little kids!
We punched a hole in the top and added a ribbon
so they could hang them on their door knobs.
Evelyn told me she already decorated her room.
Then wrote,"smell the pine" on her card.
Must have fun!
Now this gal has her priorities straight!
As you can imagine,
the holidays are a very difficult time for these patients and their families.
This may not do much to alleviate that
but they all seemed to enjoy the project.
I send many warm thoughts and prayers to
everyone out there who may be dealing with this
