Good morning everyone. I work in memory care with about 50 residents. My company is wanting me to have a family night/ event every single month. These family nights have to get the residents & families involved and different themes. Looking for any type of ideas of things that you've done in the past that have worked. Thanks!

Here is a good place to start

BBQs with entertainment is good but costly

Showcasing different countries each month has also worked.

Another idea is to look ahead at celebrations that happen each month and highlight one of those for each month

Our resident choral group performed four times a year so you could have them perform as part of any family night especially if you cannot think of anything else to do
