We are truly touched by the feedback our members send us! We appreciate all your support :)
This is a valuable resource for those working with older people. The activities are suitable for a range of abilities and focus on fun for all.
Love using lots of your quizzes, riddles, word games, games and craft activities. There's always something new to give inspiration. Thanks very much.
You're quite the special angel here to assist everyone. It takes a special kind of person to deal with seniors - they are not given the respect or credit they so deserve to have lasted this long on this earth. To have witnessed such history is amazing. So many are forgotten about and I try everyday to share RAOKs (Random Acts of Kindness) with any person I see that could use it - thank you again for the great ideas which I hope to spread around the area to help make others know how special they are.
I just wanted to tell you that this addition of "This day in History" is phenomenal!!!! I've been looking for something like this, and to have it all done, makes my job so much easier! I love your website and my seniors enjoy all of the great activities! THANK YOU!!
We love your website! Everyday I find a new and exciting programs/projects to incorporate into the day. You have made my job alot easier and for that I appreciate you:)
Golden Carers helps me professionally carry out my daily activities and keep my residents happy! I just love Golden Carers.

Golden Carers has made creating our monthly rosters so much easier with fantastic ideas, games and quizzes to keep my Day Club members entertained and the brain ticking over. Thank you, the membership fee even for our small volunteer group is money well spent. :)
I just recently joined this site also and let me tell you it is WONDERFUL!!!! I am an activity director at a senior center and not only do our older seniors enjoy it but we also have a group respite program geared towards participants with dementia and Alzheimer's, that respond really well to the trivia/quizzes that the website offers. I am so thankful to have this site as a resource to assist with enhancing their quality of life!

Many thanks for making our life so much easier. Otherwise designing these activities would take forever!
Your site is easy to use, I use it more often than the one our consultant has set up! I use so many of your ideas and love the Facebook page where everyone shares ideas, concerns and triumphs! I feel connected to a big wonderful caring society! I am always telling my co-workers how awesome Golden Carers is. I feel it is more in touch with the needs of my residents than many of the other Recreational Therapy sites.
I am always on the lookout for new ideas. When I saw your website, I thought 'golden find for golden carers'. Thank you so much for this resource.

Golden Carers has been invaluable to my Activities Program.
It's really wonderful to see our clients so engaged with the puzzles and word searches, the Trivia is really popular and our participants get a buzz out of getting the answers correct. Golden Carers is our "Go To" resource on a weekly basis and it is rewarding for our working day to add it to our activity programs.
Activity + Respite Worker
Thank you so much!! You provide such an awesome service to us! You are really appreciated.
"Imagine life without Golden Carers. Imagine doing the same activities day after day because the Golden Carers site doesn't exist. Now wake up and breathe a sigh of relief it was all just a bad dream. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!"
I would like to congratulate Golden Carers for being an invaluable tool in enabling me to provide my Dementia clients with a wide range of appropriate activities.
Great value for money, I would recommend you to anyone working in this field. A big thank you!!!

I cannot tell you how helpful this site has been. The best decision I've ever made!! As soon as I get organized, I'm adding some ideas.
Thank you for your articles and for providing a place to go for someone with no experience in this field. Without people like you I'd be completely lost! THANK YOU!!!
I absolutely love this site. It is so resourceful. Thank you!
Thank you for such great content and resources. Something for every occasion. I really love using this website.
I'm very new to aged care so I'm checking in regularly and feel like I have a new best friend.
I have only just found you and I have been overwhelmed by the content. A week ago, I was contemplating leaving my job because I was just running out of ideas and I was getting bored doing the same old things. Not now! Thank you!

Stella Igihozo Naza
Golden Carers is just wonderful. An amazing resource shared all over the world. I use Golden carers on a daily basis and added with Pinterest, it just makes my job that little bit easier on those days when inspiration doesn't come easy. I love that there is always something new every time I look.
I just love love love this site - each time I'm glued to the many and awesome ideas to engage with our seniors. I recently downloaded some of the crossword puzzles and these seniors are fabulous to work with. That is just the tip of the iceberg. In this new chapter of my life, as semi-retired, I am so enjoying my time with seniors and watching them light up; I feel I've found a new niche. It's extremely gratifying. As to the cost of membership, it came out of my pocket - I rationalised that it was only about $3/month, less than many magazines. So keep up the GREAT work!!! Thanks again Golden Carers!!!!!
Thanks so much for providing this service. I cannot wait to use the resources to help out my volunteers.

Golden Carers is a phenomenal and creative resource of activities for the senior population and people with dementia. They also provide resources and support for the caregiver too. I liked all the different types of activities that were available. You could pick and choose from a plethora of items the activities appropriate for your group. Keep on doing what you are doing. So many people's lives have been touched and improved by your website. Your website is a blessing to many organisations.
Thank you for the resources provided on Golden Carers. I found them immensely valuable, relevant and worthwhile. Educational and updated information provided. Great activity ideas and suggestions.
