Hey, everybody coming to you from Tennessee, where I’m in a rental car. This isn’t my usual car. And I’m going to show you all some products that I’m giving to one of my favorite clients in a few minutes – Remember Me Senior Care. So you get to see what I’m going to give them. All right, here we go.

When I go see clients, mostly the gifts are for the people living with dementia, but that’s the whole thing, right? So here they are. I’m going to be excited to get this outta my suitcase. This is a baby doll. You can find these guys on Amazon. They’re called Barringer babies. I think they’re also, what is the other name for these? I don’t know, look up Barringer. You’ll find it. They are bigger. They’re like 22 inches. So they’re a little bit bigger.

These are the best ones. Truly, truly, these are the best they’re soft. They’re squeezable, they’re cute. They have different outfits and different ethnicities. These are the best, and they’re a great price point as well. So you’re not spending a ton of money on baby dolls that may go missing. You may need to buy a few of ’em. Next, the books Finishing Work and Finishing Lines. I got these off the elder song website. If you were hoping to get some of these, you better go on like right now. Because I think, I don’t know if it’s just a sale or they’re shutting the site down. I don’t know what the deal is. I love these books. They were five bucks, and usually they’re 10. So you read out the first part and they fill in the blank. So peanut butter and everybody says jelly, right?

Apple pie. And there’s a lot of maybe answers here, but ice cream. Okay. So these are great for groups. They’re great for individuals. I’ve used these with people who really have trouble verbally communicating and they still do well. The finishing words it’s like words that start with, go with go not bad, good. A Disney dog character with long black ears – goofy. So some of these are a little bit harder than other ones. But I love these. I also love the finishing lyrics books. So if you happen to find that, maybe let me know in the comments too, because I was actually looking for finishing lyrics and could not find it. And then I’ve got Aqua paints, love, love, love, Aqua paints. You give these to your residents, your loved ones living with dementia and they paint with water on the sheets.

So they paint with water and outcomes really beautiful paintings. And so, because it’s Remember Me senior care and they have a farm-style look and feel they are going to I think really love these guys. And then of course, last but not least, this is my own thing. So these are little pins from me at Dementia By Day. And it’s for companies and their staff who go through my trainings. So Dementia By Day pins and the staff members get to wear them around. They’re really cute. They’re nice. They got a little backing on them. Good quality. I love these pins. So those are some of my favorite products in the dementia care world, and three different places where you can find them. You can buy these on Amazon. You can also buy these on relish. Just type in relish, R E L I S H and type in dementia, and you’ll find it on Google baby from Amazon and the finishing words, lyrics, books, lines, books it from elder song. If you Google this word, you know this phrase, hopefully, you’ll find it anyway.

Hope you enjoyed that client gift debut. And if you have suggestions for your favorite dementia care products, I’d love to hear about it. You can send me a message on Instagram or put it in the comments below!
