In China, the care of elderly with dementia is mostly efficiency-centered and institutionalized, and the elderly have nothing to do in everyday life. In order to enhance the social experience of the elderly and improve their mental state, the researchers used activity intervention as one of the non-drug intervention methods in the S facility in Hangzhou, and guided the elderly to participate in various types of activities according to the situation of the facility. This study analyzed the social behaviors of the elderly in different activities, as well as the preferences of different types of elderly for activities, and demonstrated the effectiveness of various activities in the intervention process, providing references for the selection and design of activities in the intervention for facility managers.
The methods include behavioral observation, map annotation, and face-to-face interview.
