Posted in Spot the Differences Contest

Hi. Our residents are loving these 'spot the differences' but yesterday a room full of people could only find 9 differences for #5 (the fellow in the tub). Are the answers available anywhere?
Regards

Posted in How to Increase Work Satisfaction through Goal Setting

Thanks for posting this. It is very helpful for me, the contents of goal setting are clear and it has the necessary step by step ways of helping one to be organized and achieve it.

Best,

Posted in Name the Aircraft Quiz

Thank you so much for the great photos and information. I work with many men who were in the aerospace field and can identify these aircraft. Even though they all have Memory problems, they are so very proud of their contributions in this field.
Can't wait to try it with some of our engineers!

I did the same, unfortunately the mugs get put in the dishwasher and the mug's decoration disappears

Posted in I Went to Market Game

I used this activity for a small group of dementia residents and after the second try they were having fun.. They told me it was fun trying to recall what each one had said. At the end of the activity residents began to improve on there socializations, and helping each other to recall what was said and what they purchased at the market. Using the market idea was excellent. Thank You. Marie. USA

Posted in Hand Massage & Nail Care

I always use nail polish remover after doing a hand massage if I'm going to be painting nails to remove any hand lotion from fingernails or the polish wont stay on. I think its great to be done on a regular basis nothing worse then scruffy nail polish.
