I played a game with my residents where I decorated a special hat. We sat in a circle and each person had a turn of wearing the hat and making up a story about where they were going in their 'special hat' . They residents went to all kinds of places from the Palace to meet the Queen, to the beach wearing matching bikinis, to the races to drink champagne. It was really fun and they were so creative with their stories.

We do a similar thing and call it show and tell. residents bring something that they value and show and talk about the item. This also gets the conversation going.

Agree with the previous lady re: "could you please give some examples of the kinds of things that are written on the notes".

We recently did something similar at our organisation, which was getting each resident to bring to the activities room a favorite photo.We then all discussed where, when and what they were doing when the photo was taken. This brought on great conversation and reminiscing. It was also such an easy activity to coordinate

I great Idea for engaging residents in reminiscing and reflecting back on past memories of the days when they used to wear hats.
