About Golden Carers

Supporting carers of the elderly worldwide since 2007

Golden Carers is a family owned business operating since 2007 and based in Brisbane, Australia.

Solange is a Diversional Therapist (Recreation Therapist) and has worked in the aged care industry for the past 30 years. Always searching for new ideas and activities for her clients, Solange thought it would be wonderful if there was a website dedicated to people like her. A website full of inspirational ideas and activities, support materials and a forum to share ideas. So that’s what we set out to create.

At the time, Talita, Maurice & Chris were running a web and mobile development company. Their experience in software development was the perfect match for Solange’s vision for Golden Carers.

Golden Carers is an interactive website for Diversional Therapists, Recreation Therapists and other caregivers of the elderly, including volunteers. The website provides 1000s of activity ideas, forms & templates, documentation samples and many more support materials.

Golden Carers members come from all over the world from a wide range of backgrounds and experience. If two heads are better than one, imagine what a whole community can achieve.

We hope you enjoy the website. If you feel like leaving some feedback, please do so here.

We'd love to hear from you!

Linda Beale - Activities Coordinator

This website has been such a tremendous asset to me in providing such great ideas. The clients have enjoyed the picture bingo, quizzes and I am looking forward to doing word ladders with them for the first time very soon. I also print out crosswords and word searches and make up booklets for them to do in their rooms. I will be definitely rejoining.

Kylie Black - Recreational Activities Officer

I absolutely love this site. I find the resources and ideas invaluable in my role as a Recreational Activities Officer in a large Nursing Home. The abundance of ideas, quizzes, and printable forms are helping me help the residents find their inner “fun” which had previously been missing. THANK YOU from myself and the residents!!

Mary Lynn Byers - Activities Director

I just LOVE the multicultural section of this fabulous website. I work as a Activities Director at a day service facility and we are currently closed due to COVID! I am mailing/delivering personalized packages to our clients. We have clients of many different cultures and ethnic backgrounds. Adding pages of color-printed information from their country really brightens their day. The family members/care givers are delighted to see a spark in their loved ones eyes when they see and read about their history. I am becoming so educated myself learning all this. It will help me when we get back to work striking a spark in our clients eye when I reminisce with them about their culture. I seriously can NOT get enough of this fantastic site. xoxo :-)

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 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!
