Family Caregiver Month: Activities for People with Dementia, Parkinson’s, and Alzheimer’s


For the nearly one-third of all United States adults who act as family caregivers, finding fun activities for relatives with dementia, Parkinson’s disease, and Alzheimer’s disease can be an impossible task. R.O.S. Therapy Systems, the company that created the first and only activity system for older adults with physical and cognitive disorders has published Activities 101 for the Family Caregiver.

“For all of the families that are thrust into the 24/7 job of caregiving, this book is a simple guide to answer the ‘how-to’ and ‘why’ questions with common sense suggestions and advice to effectively engage their loved one in activities,” said Scott Silknitter, founder of R.O.S. “Designed to help family caregivers with an easy approach to activities, Activities 101 for the Family Caregiver is based on the training and approaches used by activity professionals in nursing homes and long-term care settings.”

The book is available at, but starting November 15 and for a limited time, the book is available for free with a $15 tax deductible donation to the Lewy Body Dementia Association (LBDA). LBDA provides resources to those diagnosed with Lewy body dementia. To make a donation and receive the free book, visit
