Photo Albums and Memory Books Helpful When Visiting Elders
Posted Apr 13 2013 12:00am
Many people are reluctant to visit elders, whether they are in their
homes or a facility, mainly because they wonder what they’ll talk about.
While this reluctance is more of a worry if the elder has memory
problems from dementia, it’s often a problem even when memory isn’t an
issue.Since elders by definition have many decades of life to their credit,
they will likely enjoy looking back on the past. This is especially
important when people have Alzheimer’s disease, because their disease
prevents them from forming new memories. Nearly everyone enjoys
reminiscing to some degree.
