Preservation Pack™ was developed by the son and caregiver of an Alzheimer’s patient with the goal of preserving attention, language skills, and memory for sufferers of dementia, as well as those just experiencing normal memory loss. Preservation Pack™ activities are aimed at a group of mental processes including attention, language skills, problem solving, decision making, and memory, while providing an enjoyable channel to connect with caregivers and loved ones. Research has indicated that activities like Preservation Pack™ will help preserve cognitive function in adults with early, middle, and late stage Alzheimer’s, as well as other forms of dementia.
Preservation Pack™ contains a deck of 60 cards. Each card contains one of 15 easy to relate to retro images. The 15 images are repeated 4 times in each deck, and are framed with one of 4 colors. Each individual participating in Preservation Pack™ activities is different and will respond differently to the activities. The activities are flexible so they can be tailored to individual needs. Most of the activities may be enjoyed by 2 – 6 participants of any age. The suggested activities range from easy to moderately challenging, but can be easily modified. Rotating Preservation Pack™ activities is important. Doing so will target different cognitive functions, while maintaining interest in the activities. Keep in mind, all activities are focused on exercising the brain and interacting with others, not winning.
