  1. Tuning into their reality (literally) is helpful. The use of music has proven to be calming and helps to spark memories. I know that using a LifeSongs recordable scrapbook helps the person with dementia and their caregivers. They have 12 pages for photo collages and 12 buttons to record their favorite songs. They are personal and portable. Learn more and order yours at LifeSongs.info.

  2. This is a great blog. Patients with Alzheimer’s disease or dementia have difficulty communicating. Older patients who develop dementia retain their histories and experiences, which color their behaviors, verbalizations, and perceptions.
