Cognitive, social and spiritual stimulation are highly effective for older people, and are even said to help prevent dementia. The Brain & Soul Boosting Sessions for Seniors have proved very successful in trials in a range of settings. They are particularly popular in churches.
Brain and Soul Boosting is ideal material for use with a small group of people amongst whom you want to encourage conversation and fellowship. The workbook includes instructions on how to run a session and session outlines that take a theme around which conversation can develop.
A biblical underpinning for each session also means that they can be used as a devotional aid for the group and some of the ideas will be helpful for a more interactive form of worship service.
These four sessions for download are especially for Christmas, but could be adapted for other times of the year. They are suitable for seniors without dementia, and for those with early-middle stage dementia.
