Match Socks



Laundry is one of those chores that never seems to get completely done, so why not enlist some help and have the person with memory loss match socks?  Whether doing the more complex task of sorting though different sizes and shades of black socks or the simpler task of matching one sock of each color to its mate, this is an activity that can give the person with memory loss a sense of purpose and contribution to the household.  Even if the socks aren’t really worn by anyone, just unmatched and given back to the person later, this is a good way to keep fingers limber and minds occupied. Even better, because this is a chore that is stored in long-term memory banks, even people in the late stages of the disease can generally complete this task and feel useful while doing so.
