Bev on Questions | 26th March 2013

We have been using the same sit dance program for our morning exercise for years and it is very repetitive. Does anyone have any suggestions for something new except not zumba?

Thanks for a wonderful site. It was by accident that I came across your site when I was trying to find suitable activities for our 20 bed rest home in New Zealand. All activities I have tried have all been very successful. Just love this site. Many Thanks

Fiona, Activities Co-ordinator, New Zealand

Joanne on Story Book Reminiscing Activity | 21st March 2013

I have previously done this activity...I borrowed books from the Library, checked out the second hand shop and borrowed books from around the facililty and photocopied the covers (in A3), laminated them and used them as prompts for the residents to remember...some even borrowed the books to read later. It also makes you want to read them again too...especially the children's ones.

SUZY on Ivy Wreaths for Remembrance/Anzac Day | 21st March 2013

I love the idea of the experiencing some opposition to do this activities as there are some comments that it would be somewhat disturbing/bring about sad memories.............i personally don't agree............has any one had a bad experience with there dementia clients??? totally enjoy the Golden Carers site

I am in the process of getting this setup with the help of a resident who will walk around our village for me. Can't wait to see how it goes.
