In the UK, Easter is typically a time of year when the whole family gets together. Finding meaningful ways to engage with a loved one or family member who has dementia allows you to maintain your relationship and bond. Certain tasks can even help your loved one as their dementia progresses. Read on to find out the best Easter activities for family members with dementia.

Planting

Spring is the perfect time to plant and pot flowers and seeds – and if you’re feeling adventurous – even herbs and vegetables. It’s a calming and relaxing activity that you can not only start together as a family, but can continue over time as you water and tend to each plot or plant. For a loved one with dementia issues, they’ll of course need prompting to remember to water everything. But it’s a collective hobby that the whole family can get involved with, not to mention being rewarding to see your garden or windowsill blooming over time.

 

Get crafty

Creative activities that keep hands and minds busy can be an effective way to help family members with dementia to feel stimulated and included in any Easter festivities. Choose easily accessible mini projects like scrapbook making, egg painting or some simple flower arranging. Whether it lasts just a few minutes or a whole afternoon, it’s a great way for both young and older family members to bond. Don’t forget to treat yourself to a cup of tea and a hot cross bun at the end!

Watch a classic film together

With so many remakes popping up these days, it can be easy to forget the classics.
Whether it’s Disney family favourites on your list, or an old Judy Garland classic from the 1940’s, Easter is the perfect time to get together over a film and share a moment with your family – no matter what generation you’re from.

 

Give a gift

We all know Easter is synonymous with chocolate, it’s everywhere this time of year! But rather than traditional easter eggs, why not mix things up this year and instead opt for a non-edible gift instead? Here are a few alternative ideas:

  • Buy or make them a physical or digital photo album to house all their favourite photos and memories.
  • Go back in time with loved one for a day. You can buy memorabilia sets of replica newspapers that feature major national events gone by like the 1943 Dambusters or the Moon landing. Not only are they a lovely gift and keepsake, but it’s also a great way to spend an afternoon as you all enjoy reminiscing together about times gone by.
