  • Use past interests as a guide. When the activity is first introduced, if there is no interest, try again later.

  • Slow the pace of the activity to allow the person with AD to comprehend as well as enjoy the sensory pleasure from the activity.

  • Activity Suggestions (based on ability to succeed and for satisfaction and safety):  make ornaments; decorate the tree; decorate cookies; package baked goods; polish silver or menorah; set table; fold napkins; wrap boxes (even empty ones to decorate with); stuff, seal or stamp holiday cards; sing or listen to songs; enjoy photos, videos, slides of family and past holidays; read together favorite holiday poems and stories or seasonal magazines; take walks.
