Just like most of us love to get something nice in the mail, greeting cards are an incredible wealth of engagement for our clients with Dementia or Alzheimer's disease. The act of using dexterity to open the envelope. The brain stimulation with the curiosity of looking at the "return address" and trying to recognize it. The look of accomplishment if and when they do recognize the name. The simplistic writing on the inside makes for easy words and easy reading.

Sometimes it produces hours of thought trains and memories making for fabulously rewarding conversation. And the beauty, the cards can be saved and revisited another day. We encourage caregivers to engage in mentally stimulating activities such as this with their clients because its so important and beneficial for the client.
