One of the most important aspects of adult day services is providing companionship and opportunities for conversation. For people with memory loss, it is also vital to be stimulating the hippocampus area of the brain where memories are stored. Journaling groups are very possible as part of the activity program in an adult day center

--pose just one or two questions a day and encourage people to write their answers down themselves if possible. The long-term memories may still be very much intact. Activity directors in adult day care centers could also use pictures to prompt memories such as those offered in the MemoryBio curriculum available from LifeBio (samples are available by emailing ) .
