Selecting gifts for dementia victims can be difficult as the person will not be able to appreciate the thought behind receiving the gift. However, this does not mean that you should not be giving gifts, especially if you love the person from the bottom of your heart.
Gifts for dementia victims should be something that the person can use or play with. For instance, you can gift the person some clothes that are easy to put on and remove; you can present the person with slippers that just have to be slid on; you can present them with their favorite food; or give him or her a DVD of their favorite movie, which they can watch over and over again without getting tired.
Many people suffering from dementia tend to retrogress and become childlike. So, you can think about giving them dolls or stuffed animals that they can hold on to and play with. You can also present the dementia victim with children's toys that can be manipulated and this will keep them busy for hours together.
Other gifts for dementia victims that you can give are as follows:
- A karaoke tape that the person can sing to for hours together.
- A memory phone which a person can dial just by pushing a photograph of the person he or she wants to call.
- Jigsaw puzzles that will keep the person busy for hours together. This is especially a great gift for those who are in the intermediate stage of dementia.
