Photo albums are just one way to capture and preserve the memories of someone with Alzheimer’s, and oftentimes they are a great way to reminisce. Photos help generate a feeling of familiarity and comfort.
Invite other family members to look at old photos with you and your loved one. The person may not recognize everything, so if they start to get confused or embarrassed, just move on.
If you find a few photos that seem to ignite conversation and bring positive feelings to a person with Alzheimer’s, keep those handy to look at often with them.
