At A Senior Retreat, Adult Day Services our most prominent diagnosis that our team works with is Dementia. In our adult day care center, we have “interactive” decor, such as our wall of hats, handbags and scarves. Friends are encouraged to dress up and have fun with whatever they choose. Each handbag also has some bright colored jewelry, like clip earrings, necklaces and brooches that are appealing to the eyes and touch of those with various levels of dementia. One of
the handbags is covered in white beads that is also positively stimulating to the touch for those with more advanced dementia. In our Quiet Lounge at the adult day care center, we have a basket full of colorful doilies that are great for sorting by colors or to enjoy the touch sensory of the fabrics.
