Title: Simple Gifts
Authors: Greenstein, Doreen
Buettner, Linda
Coffman, Charlotte
Issue Date: May-2000
Publisher: Cornell Cooperative Extension
Abstract: Simple Gifts guides adults to help youth produce items specific for people with Alzheimer's disease. Research shows that people with Alzheimer's may prefer to handle and manipulate things rather than engage in conversation. Sixteen projects ranging from a fleecy muff to a home decorator folder, include detailed instructions and patterns. The program also encourages participants to learn about the disease and become involved in community intergenerational opportunities. If, however, you want to help but are uncomfortable visiting in person, items can be made and delivered to the care facility director ore caregiver. This is a "win-win-win" situation for everyone - the resident, the adult and youth volunteers, and the care facility or caregiver.
