We've noticed in recent weeks the growing coverage of how keeping active can help people with a dementia to reconnect to lost parts of themselves. Here's our Top 5 selection of how you can help, in no particular order.
As humans we are led through the world by our senses, our taste, smell, sight, hearing and sense of touch help us connect to the world around us. Often with the onset of dementia these senses can be dulled or conversely, over-stimulated but when they are used to reconnect to memories and past joys, then they help bypass the barriers created by dementia.

We mentioned earlier this year about a documentary presented by Alan Shearer into the possible connection between footballing, specifically "heading" the ball and dementia.
Alan has been in Scotland to film some of the documentary which is due to be aired on the BBC later this year. You can read more about why Alan wanted to do the documentary on this link -
When you’re little, say 5 or 6 years old, and you spill your baked beans down your school jumper, no one really minds, because you’re young, and probably cute and you’re still learning to manipulate cutlery and crockery. Imagine when you are a little older and the same thing happens, we might laugh at ourselves and apologise for the stain later on in the day.
Following hot on the heels of our new Complete Oral Care Solution Pack and handy Oral Care Management Guide, we’re excited to have approved the final draft for our Dignified Dining Solutions Guide. Designed as an aid for you to help the people you support, with a Dementia, to eat better. This has been a real labour of love and you’ll find out why when we get the final printed copy in our hands, (with hopefully no typos), very soon!
