Gift Guide for Alzheimer’s & Dementia Patients

Coloring Books for Adults
Coloring has been shown to reduce stress and agitation, as well as provide an outlet for self-expression. It improves hand-eye coordination and helps maintain motor function. It also is a great way to have grandchildren and grandparents participate in an activity together!

Music Player
Unlike some MP3 players, new music players are large, friendly easy to use. You can load them with custom songs or listen to pre-loaded classics. People of all ages know the benefits of listening to music, and this makes it easy for those with memory problems to listen to music, skip songs, and change the volume.

Automatic Pill Dispenser
Remembering to take medication can be a huge hassle, especially if the patient is often confused about what day of the week it is. This pill dispenser will only dispense pre-loaded medications at the right time and in the right dosage, every day. It also rotates old doses away, so no more double-dosing!

Buy or Make an Activity Mat
Activity Mats are mats of fabric with pockets, zippers, strings, buttons, bells, beads and other tactile objects that patients can play with instead of fidgeting. They focus attention, stimulate, entertain, and exercise the hand muscles. Many handmade mats can have toys or photographs sewn on.

Family Calendar
Those with Memory Issues will probably have a calendar or two in the house- why not make one a Family Photo Calendar as a visual reminder of loved ones? You can also make customized frames, books, pillows, mugs and so much more with image-publishing services.

Stuffed Animals or Dolls

Dolls have been used as a form of therapy for patients. The dolls help give them a sense of purpose and something to nurture in a world where everyone is taking care of them. They have a calming effect, can be used to facilitate social interaction with others and provide tactile stimulation.
