Hi everyone. Just wondering if anyone would have any ideas for a group of residents with varing conditions from advanced dementia to communication difficulties and visual impairements that they could do on their own while i was facilitating other activities in the unit. I have put a rummage box in sitting room but not proving successful as only one resident so far has taken any interest in it. Other staff appear not to have the time or interest to supervise. Whilist i am not in this sitting room all residents have is the TV which is really not meaningful to them. The residents don't interact with each other due to their illness etc when i am not in the sitting room. Any advise would be grateful. Thank you.
