Best TV Shows For Seniors With Alzheimers

Best TV Shows For Seniors With Alzheimers

It is important to keep seniors who suffer from Alzheimers entertained. Watching older television can help with brain activity and to recall memories from the past. Read on to learn more.

A positive tv show can assist with mood, ease anxiousness and promote socialization especially when they watch tv with other family members, who can explain if the plot gets consfusing and keep an eye on suitable content.

DVD’s are the best choice for seniors as it is easier to control the content and can ensure the shows are not too challenging to watch. Seniors who have Alzheimers should not be subjected to stressful shows with suspense or violence or the news as it can impact their ability to tell reality from fantasy. These shows are highly recommended for seniors:

  • The Golden Girls
  • The Waltons
  • The Lawrence Welk Show
  • The Carol Burnett Show
  • Bonanza
  • The Andy Griffith Show
  • Leave It To Beaver
  • I Love Lucy (and its various iterations)
  • The Dick Van Dyke Show
  • I Dream Of Jeannie
  • The Brady Bunch
  • Are You Being Served?
  • Sanford And Son
  • As Time Goes By
