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!
I just wanted to say thank you for all you do to help me and others in my field! The support of your resource has been even more important during COVID and I am so, so thankful. Also thank you for creating a Spanish version of This Day in History!!! I recommend you to my colleagues any chance I get.

Golden Carers has researched articles on dementia activities, men’s activities, dealing with challenging behaviour, and more. Thank you for a great web site. Professional! Informative! Well researched! Innovative!
Golden Carers' website is OUTSTANDING! I tell others about it often. I appreciate everything you do! Your team works hard and it shows! My people LOVE the Rhyming Riddles! They feel so smart when they guess correctly. I repeat them from time to time, and they still enjoy! Feel free to create more.
Activities for Seniors
This is my go to site. I have looked at the others, but Golden Carers has a sense of fun and creativity that makes the activities we do enjoyable for all. They are adaptable for all levels. We did the Olympic Day and had a blast. Everyone got up and participated !!! Thank you.
This is the most wonderful resource that can be used year in and year out, a great addition for staff when they are planning activities.

We just got a "tablet" for our Activities group and we love having Golden Cares downloaded on it! It saves so much on photocopies and continues to make our day better:) Thank you!
Golden Carers helps me professionally carry out my daily activities and keep my residents happy! I just love Golden Carers.

I am absolutely thrilled to have found this site. My colleagues and I use the resources daily. I would be lost without it! Congratulations on building a site that just keeps on giving!

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 :-)

Lifestyle Care Assistant
Thank you so much for this fabulous resource. This is such a great site. Transformed our activities. Thank you to everyone who contributes.
I just renewed my membership and going into my second year. When I got the notification that my first year was expiring, I knew I had to renew, there was no doubt in my mind. GoldenCarers is PRICELESS! As a DJ and mobile entertainer for over 38 years much of my business is with assisted living facilities and GoldenCarers has taken it above and beyond my competition. It always has something useful and too many to point out. I could no imagine running my business without GoldenCarers. You guys ROCK!

Golden Carers is AMAZING! We use it every day in one capacity or another. It has assisted to make our jobs easier as well as stepping up our activities! Thank you for all the materials and resources, keep up the GREAT work!

One of the best sites I have ever come across that supports clients in a person-centred and meaningful way. The resources are so user-friendly and there is always something new to learn. Thank you!
You have the best activity and recreation site out in the world. I use about 4 sites, and yours is always the best! I can always find the best from your site.
