LOVE JARS for use with Dementia and Alzheimer’s
LOVE JARS and LOVE JAR Therapy is a concept for use with Dementia and Alzheimer’s.
We are reaching out to families of loved ones; who may be suffering from or starting to show signs of these terrible diseases, to consider and share this concept with your family and friends.
LOVE JARS can help keep the mind focused on Positive Loving Thoughts during this very tough time.
A LOVE JAR is also something wonderful to do together with your family when you visit your loved one. This will not only provide something to do while visiting, but will keep family thinking of positive and loving thoughts together; instead of negative thoughts or feelings like sadness, fear, uncertainty and awkwardness of what to do or say.
Take turns remembering something you did or shared together with your loved one (whether or not they remember it). Talk and/or laugh about it together and write it on a note and put it in a LOVE JAR. For Example: Notes can begin “I love to remember…” , “I always loved it when…” , “I remember once when…” , etc. When other family visits; they can look at some of the notes your family put in the LOVE JAR and remember it again with your loved one. They too can share in the concept and therapy by taking turns remembering things they did together with your loved one and writing their own notes of their memories and stories, and adding them into the LOVE JAR.
LOVE JAR THERAPY for Memory Retention and Recollection
LOVE JARS is an excellent way to not only help capture the loving thoughts and memories into a treasured keepsake note by note, memory by memory…BUT ALSO a therapeutic tool for recalling memories that could be incorporated into a therapy on a daily basis, or to just record memories and loving thoughts whenever you are able. We also suggested to pull out a note regularly from the jar and remember the loving thought or memory and/or remember having had the memory. This could possibly help spark another connected memory.
You can put all notes into one LOVE JAR or you can have multiple or specific LOVE JARS for children or grandchildren (read more in “About“; creating treasured heirlooms).
There may also be a therapeutic effect that LOVE JARS can have on the family and loved ones of the person battling memory loss. Knowing that there are many memories to refer to and knowing that they were able to share in so many happy loving things in their loved ones’ life, can be comforting to some degree for the families. The LOVE JAR full of memories and shared love is something they will have to reinforce that.
We have also just launched our “Virtual LOVE JARS” which you can access by laptop, smartphone, notepad or kindle.
You can access and create a free account with or for your loved one and notes and letters can be entered and saved into their Virtual LOVE JARS online.
A Gift of an actual physical LOVE JAR; that can be displayed and visible to your loved one and visiting family members, can also be a very powerful tool and visual reminder of Positive Loving Thoughts and Memories.
