hi, I am new to your site and have found some really great things. I am getting ready to admit our first residents into the skilled nursing part of our community. Their skills are quite diminished and I am searching for latest greatest proven activities for the low functioning folks. I would love any ideas that you may have to share. I know music is the tried and true but looking for other ideas.
