Updated 10/18/2021 Hello all my wonderful readers! Today, for Memory Care Monday, I am going to tell you about one of my most favorite things, taking and looking at pictures. Now these serve two different types of memory, short term, and long term. Taking new pictures, and then looking at them in 6 months, or so, will help your short term memory. Looking at old pictures, from say when you were a child, or your children were babies, will help with long term memory. I love to pull out all my old pictures, long before smart phones, lol, and try to remember what we were doing, and why were we there. My kids get a kick out of these pictures too, so it can be a great bonding activity. Maybe you have a loved one who is starting to lose their memory. This is a wonderful activity for them as well. Even people who are already in the throws of Alzheimer’s can benefit from this walk down memory lane. Have fun with it. Make it a game, even. Dress up like the style for that time period. Learn the lingo of the day. There are many great ways to help your loved one with Dementia, or maybe you work with Dementia residents. I saw this cool photo album that you can add voice to. What a brilliant idea. If you need a gift idea for a loved one with Dementia check it out on Amazon. I will be looking at these for Christmas for a loved one in my family.

Baby books are kind of becoming obsolete, so start a blog when your baby is born. It will always be there, unless you delete it. I have had a homeschool blog ever since I started with my kinds way back in the 2nd grade. I have graduated 1, and have 1 more to go. I have so much fun looking back at all the wonderful, fun things we did to learn. Some day my kids will show it to their kids, and maybe they will even get some tips if they decide to homeschool their kids.
Have a blessed Monday! If you would like help in setting, and reaching your health, and wellness goals, use the communication form below to message me about my 30 day coaching plans!
