Hobbies, pastimes and everyday activities

We all need to do things that keep us occupied and stimulated. If you can help the person you are caring for to find activities that they enjoy, from taking a walk to looking at photos, you can improve their quality of life. This will make you feel better, too.

For more details on how activities can help a person with dementia and their carer see Factsheet 505, Keeping active and staying involved
