Colouring is great for those who have dementia because it is a very engrossing activity and stretches the mind. Absolutely anyone can do it and you really don’t have to be good at drawing in order to reap the many benefits. Some people find that it takes their mind away from all of their every day worries and it helps them to remain calm at the same time. It can be a very useful activity if you struggle with dementia or even aggression and have been useful in channelling those negative feelings into something creative and more productive.
What’s even better is that it can also help you to remember things as results of a recent study have shown. This study had someone read aloud names to a group who were doodling and this was repeated to a group of people doing nothing. The amazing results showed that those who doodled remembered 29% more of the names read out than those that did nothing. This study has proved that colouring or doodling is a great way for you to not only help with the symptoms of dementia, but can also help with memory improvement as well.
