Decorate with Window Clings

I love using window clings to celebrate virtually any holiday. They’re inexpensive, easy to use, and best of all, reusable — I mean really, what’s not to love? I used to volunteer at a nursing home where this was a popular activity. Some residents were able to stick the window clings onto the window without assistance. Others needing some prompting as to where they might place certain items. Others found it too confusing/overwhelming to be involved in the act of decorating, but enjoyed admiring what the other individuals had put together. The idea is to be flexible in how you involve the person with dementia. Ensure that he/she is not bored but also not frustrated either. Let your creative spirit run wild and enjoy!
