Holding a Familiar Object

Putting something familiar or meaningful in the hands of someone with dementia can provide a great deal of comfort and help soothe restless energy.


  • Have a basket of favorite objects handy.


Pick objects that are sentimental to your loved one. Have them hold the object, and describe to you what it means to them or why it's important.
