My Dad turns 80 soon. He's has dementia, it seems to be fairly slowly progressing, he can still read, walk, get outdoors etc but is very forgetful obviously. Any ideas for a present for his 80th birthday?

What about a photo book with old pics in. I found it useful with my grandpa as it gave us something to talk about and the past is often more accessible than the present.
This. Reminiscence is great for a lot of people with dementia. You can add non photo things too e.g. ticket stubs, medals etc.

My dad is at a similar stage and loves going out for coffee. It’s his birthday next month and I am going to bring him for afternoon tea. He also likes to walk around the garden and drown water the flowers so I am going to get him some containers and bedding plants for us to pot up together.
