I love Golden Carers, it's a fantastic resource! I not only find great activities for my seniors to do but have also inspired me to make my own activities to share as well. Thanks so much & keep up the wonderful job!
I cannot believe it has been a full year since I started using Golden Carers. I remember going back and forth mentally if I wanted to try something new or keep on paying for an older resource that we didn't use often and was much more expensive for the entire year. I'm so glad I chose to make the switch and now here I am renewing my membership for the 2nd year. This site is great! Keep up the good work

- Ask guests to say Hi to each other and introduce themselves.
- Have the family to organize a short This is Your Life with slides of photos and significant moments in the life of the birthday person, like special memories or fun stories from the past.
- You may find some trivia from the year the person was born and read it out to guests. Find happy and fun events of that particular year.
- Play the game Do You Have...? This is a group game where items are gathered from various people encouraging interaction. The game consists of roughly dividing the guests into two groups and giving each group a list of things to produce from their pockets or handbags etc. Each group should have a leader who will shout out every time they find an item. The group with the most items wins the applause of everyone.
Items for the game Do You Have...? Use this list or make your own list.
