August 6 is Root Beer Float (or "black cow") Day! Making root beer floats is not only refreshing on a hot summer day, but gives those with dementia a fun opportunity to reminisce and an easy way to be involved in a meaningful activity. Pro Tip: People with dementia often feel frustrated due to a lack of control, so help them maintain their dignity by utilizing and building on the skills they still have.
