Creating a Routine
Creating a daily routine allows one to have purpose throughout their day. Routines create a pattern for the person with dementia and help them know what to expect in their day, or to have some familiarity with the day despite their cognitive impairment. Some persons with dementia benefit from having a daily routine written on paper or a calendar.
During the Day Program closure, we understand that caregivers and the person with dementia have experienced a disruption in their daily and weekly routines.
We hope the resources on our website will help give you ideas of some new things you can do to create your own daily routine.
