Social Recreation for the Person Living with Dementia


The Alzheimer Society is pleased to offer a variety of social recreation programs to our clients in the early to middle stages of Alzheimer’s disease or other dementias (ADOD).

These programs are intended to provide social and cognitive stimulation in a welcoming and inclusive atmosphere that engages our clients and allows care partners a few hours respite or the opportunity to join in with their loved one.

No prior experience is necessary in these activities. We focus on creating a ”failure-free” environment in which the focus is on strengths, not losses.
