Individuals with dementia may have difficulty recognizing objects or remembering the holiday, so it’s helpful to keep decorations festive and fun rather than scary and dark.
That being said, there are so many fun and festive ways to celebrate the day!
Here are a few of our ideas...
Listen to themed music such as “The Monster Mash” and dance! Music sparks memories and dancing is just plain fun!
