Good morning my name is Reuben Giovanni a Senior at Auburn University. I am currently working on an aide for Alzheimer's for a senior project and need expert opinions and opinions in general. Do keepsake boxes work in helping to serve as reminders??

In the early stages perhaps but once the disease progresses they will forget what these items are as well as what memory they are connected to.

Thank you. Have you heard about the healing properties of coconut oil being used on alzheimers studies show that it has the potential to improve and also sustain the memory of the patient. So what are your thoughts if a keep sake box introduced early with a form of coconut oil was included?

Yes, I've heard of coconut oil but its one of those things. It might not work for everyone who has AD. But it has possibilities.

Good morning thanks for the input, any ideas on a keepsake aide presented early to help with memory if items were presented in the morning and before bed when the brain is most plastic?
