That's right Diane. When I worked for the RSL we played with 12 cards. However if you work in a facility where most residents are fragile (high care) it is too difficult for them to turn the cards. Thanks for the tip on the crossword grid.

A couple of years ago I purchased a very large crossword grid from Lovatts online. I stick it to a board so the group can see it. IT comes with a clue book and the grid is laminated so it can be used over and over. There are 3 types of puzzles and there are many to choose from.Check it out. Dianne (RAO)

Hi I\'m a Diversional Therapist ans have worked in Aged Care Facilities for the past 22yrs. We are always looking for ideas for our men so they don\'t feel out. These puzzles have been great for them and I found it gave them a sense of being with mates and helping each other out with solving the puzzles. Thanks for the ideas. Eileen.

I love to get your very helpful emails. I am doing the Cert IV Leisure/Lifestyle course, and find these ideas so stimulating.
