Dance to music
Both physical activity and listening to music have a positive impact on people with dementia. Why not try combining the two? Dancing is not only the art that professionals do in a ballroom. To be technical about it, dancing is moving rhythmically to music. If the person has functional impairment, swinging the arms, swaying bodies or nodding the head can be dancing. The choice of music should be guided by your intentions with the activity, try an upbeat rhythm for a workout or fun activity, or soothing classical music for a calmer moment.
