McCormick Dementia Services – Caregiver’s Corner – Recreation – Activity Ideas & How-To at Home – Cognitive Stimulation

Games, Puzzles and Trivia

Some activities can be enjoyed on the screen, whereas others need to be printed (sometimes in colour, otherwise black and white is fine). There are many activities that require items to be cut out. The person with dementia may enjoy cutting these items out as an added activity.
Depending on your internet settings, when you attempt to open some items, you may have to select “allow” or choose “yes” to get the item to open/load.
