“I do cognitive stimulation at my nursing center. Beads are an excellent tool for this. It is a fun way to integrate therapy because the residents get to keep their results. For example when a package of beads comes in we use those extra large S – S pill holders to separate the beads by color. It helps the cognitive challenged to recall the colors by name and to differentiate the colors by putting them in different slots. Then we will assist them in making a bracelet or necklace which is a good fine motor exercise. Later on if an alert resident wants to do an independent beading activity in her room we give her a container of beads and some elastic string and away she goes creating awesome jewelry. We have some cognitively challenged residents that love to decorate. It gives them a sense of pride.”
