Hands on Ambient Activities create opportunities for spontaneous interaction, engagement and socialization.

Dementia related activities include: Sorting a wall-mounted cupboard, rotating a wheel to reveal images, and touch screen activity such matching pairs.

Caregivers may introduce a resident with dementia to the activity modelling by physically helping with hand over hand assistance which may  stimulate memory through movement. Caregiver distress may be reduced by  preventing responsive behaviors.

The ABBY is an Ambient Activity that uses touch-screen technology along with personalized experiences, memories, and activities with the aim of triggering memories and engaging residents with dementia.
