I did my first Armchair Travel to Italy today with 27 Residents! Thank you so much for all the information and activities. I was lucky to spend time in Italy in 2017 and shared two of my slide shows of pictures that I had taken. Everyone enjoyed it and are asking what country we are going to next! - Elaine Partsch Recreation Coordinator - Points West Living Stettler

Love this... We have been doing similar armchair travels for the past couple of years. Traveled the world in a year...then Destination travel this past year (did local or United States). Provide sensory, music, educational, movies, baking/cooking programs and travel videos. Each quarter we meet with the nutrition department and plan a program we call.. the taste of (destination for that month). Nutrition provides us with either a dessert or popular dish for that destination, and recreation does the opposite. On the day of the Taste, we decorate accordingly, and sample foods, desserts and drinks based on our itinerary. Our residents have looked forward to traveling monthly.

I have been thinking about starting arm chair travel sessions but didn't know where to start! I have a big set of travel DVD's to use, and now I have lots of ideas on things to do along with the DVD's! Thank you so much!

Love this new concept
Each month we have a meal - "Foods from other Countries" - introducing new flavours, new foods, different ways of cooking etc, so now I can extend this and incorporate more information about the countries we are eating from as an Activity for that day.
