Pleasure requires no memory. There are several activities that provide us with daily feelings of well-being and pleasure. The person with dementia needs a good quality of life. At a stage where the elderly person is already totally dependent, where they no longer recognize family members and have lost the ability to speak, there are activities that can be done.
Include sensory experiences:
The caregiver can use background music that meets the taste of the elderly and allows them to relax. Then, the caregiver with massage oils will be able to massage the neck, hands and feet of the elderly person. This activity is very simple, but through music and the sensation caused by massage, the elderly will be able to reduce anxiety or stress and improve their emotional state.
