Intervention program mediated by recreational activities and socialization in groups for pwa with alzheimer’s disease

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Interventions mediated by recreational activities (games and art therapies) are frequently offered to people with dementia in nursing homes or day care centers. These recreational-occupational activities result in behavioral and cognitive gains in people with Alzheimer’s disease compared to those undergoing other kinds of cognitive treatment or receiving ordinary routine care.The intervention program comprises cognitive activities, exercise, recreational activities (music listening, party games, card games, poster creation, and painting on tissue or pottery), and activities of daily living (setting and clearing the table, preparing tea or coffee, washing hands and dishes, preparing simple cakes or fresh pasta). Caregivers receive educational and psychological support and then support the client to perform physical and cognitive activities at home.
