Hi Everyone, I am looking for an Activity on a Sunday afternoon 1pm - 2.15pm in our (High Care section) I know I shouldn't segregate, as it is now known as "Ageing in Place". We have Sing-along after morning tea and its great, however I am stuck for an idea to keep my beautiful residents uplifted. Thanks again Bron in Australia.

How about some kind of a spiritual event like a spiritual circle?
Keep it nondenominational singing familiar hymns. Perhaps you can find a group or family member who would like to lead this
Another idea is to read and discuss uplifting stories like Chicken Soup for the Soul stories
Be sure to make it interactive
Another idea is simple trivia or a simple game Golden Carers has many suggestions

I like card and large dice games that are simple
