Ask staff and families to bring in albums, framed photographs, gowns (bridal or guest) etc. It is amazing how much you will collect!

Our facility manager is getting married soon, so this coming week we are having her"hens party". Residents are involved in party games, decorating, bridal morning tea and written advise for the lucky bride-to-be read out at the event. Many residents have enjoyed sharing their own wedding stories with both residents and staff to date.

A nurse in our household unit recently got married, and she showed a video of her marriage ceremony. Many other staff members brought in their wedding pictures, and residents had fun trying to identify which photos depicted current staff. We also had residents give advice to the bride several weeks before her wedding. The best comment was "Rethink the whole thing," !!!
