Stage of dementia: Early

These products and activities help work towards a goal with a tangible outcome. A jigsaw, for example, gives just the right amount of challenge while being totally achievable. We recommend giving the person with dementia the space to talk and enjoy their time independently. But if you're helping them, keep sentences short, be on hand to troubleshoot any questions, and focus on feelings of pride and achievement.

Stage of dementia: Early-Mid

These products and activities are designed to help people focus on the individual steps of the activity, breaking them down into manageable chunks. It’s about the experience rather than the end result. We suggest helping out with simple, understandable reassuring comments while encouraging creativity and spontaneity.

Stage of dementia: Mid-Late

Products and activities in this group focus on the experience of sensation from the activity while helping people move their body in relation to the sensations. We suggest helping by guiding people through single-step activities, encouraging a wide variety of sensations and giving simple instructions. It's also good to reinforce with a demonstration.

Stage of dementia: Late

In late stage dementia, movement can be subconscious - a reflex response to direct sensory stimulation. People experience feelings inspired by the colour, sound, smell, taste and feel of individual products.'
