Hand Massage

Hand massages are a nice way to pamper someone and help relieve stress and tension.  Even those who are unable to communicate verbally can be visibly more relaxed after a nice hand massage.  For tips, try watching this video.

 Make the experience even more special by using a scented lotion.  Lavender oil and lemon balm are both shown to help people relax before sleep or lower levels of anxiety during the day.  Of course, not just people with memory loss like hand massages, so why not watch the video with a friend and then offer to let them practice on you!
