Sinterklaas quiz: brain fitness for dementia

  1. Elderly people with dementia, usually caused by a disease such as Alzheimer's or Parkinson's, often have fond memories of the Saint from their childhood. A quiz about Saint Nicholas can evoke memories from their long-term memory in these elderly people. Such a quiz that fits the season can also help seniors with dementia to orient themselves on the time. After all, the birthday of the Good Heiligman belongs to December. December, the festive month par excellence. These seniors often become 'disoriented in time' due to dementia: they no longer know what day, month or year it is. Do you realize that Sinterklaas used to be celebrated differently: some sprinkles and a present that someone needed anyway. Knitted mittens, hats, scarves or socks in your shoe and a handful of gingerbread cookies after you sang by the chimney. But it didn't lessen the fun.

What else to do at a Sinterklaas party with elderly clients suffering from Alzheimer's? Tips

  1. Tip 1: Singing Sinterklaas songs At a Saint Nicholas party for this group, some old well-known Sinterklaas songs must of course be sung or listened to! For people who could not take part in the quiz, this is a great opportunity to participate. Texts with a large letter are nice. Those who cannot sing can read along or watch a bit. But because the family used to sing a lot together, the elderly often still know these lyrics quite well. Moreover, music is often stored for a long time in the memory of the elderly. Optionally, you can alternate the songs with the quiz questions. Or do the Sinterklaas quiz about the songs of Saint Nicholas.
