Do gardening or arrange flowers
There are many activities involving plants people with dementia might find enriching. Depending on the season, you can find different activities appropriate. In the spring, you can prepare beds and borders for planting, plant seeds and plants, cutting grass, watering, rake leaves etc. If there is a view towards a garden, it might inspire a drawing or a painting. Indoors, you can also arrange and handle flowers, herbs and plants and prompt a conversation about memories. Keep in mind that flowers or plants might be poisonous or have sharp edges or thorns, and some might need help to enjoy gardening safely.
