Working with clients or loved ones who are agitated and edgy can be challenging in many ways for caregivers. In one Thanksgiving Joyful Moments success story, an activity partner presented her low-vision client with Alzheimer’s disease a bag of autumn themed items: vegetables, spices, decorative items, etc. (simple items from around the house). They transformed those items into a holiday centerpiece for her Thanksgiving table!
Outcomes of Joyful Moments: Creative self-expression, sensory satisfaction through taste and scent, and intellectual stimulation reminiscing about favorite holiday recipes.
