What an amazing site with so many activities to stimulate our elderly people and to make them enjoy the togetherness of everything you offer as activities. I am from South Africa, Johannesburg and being part of such a huge "population" of carers having the same Purpose in mind, is a huge priviledge to me! I am the Nursing Manager of a Retirement home and keep on encouraging my residents to participate in this journey made possible by you. Thank you, you are such an inspiration!
Thanks for publishing this one! I had a great time getting it together. The experience was fairly easy so I will be trying my hand at other DIY templates as well. Your site is the best I have used in the last 36 years of my career as an Activity Director, Certified! I wish I had known about your site whenever it first started! So much content and idea sharing… no need to reinvent the wheel! 😊
Recently I happened across a you tube clip titled "Dancing Hands" recorded in May 2008 by Mary Hopkins in Muncie, Indiana. I have contacted Liberty Village where she was working at the time but she is no longer there and they were going to follow up for me but I have never heard back. I am in Melbourne, Australia so it is difficult for me to get more information. I am hoping someone out there may be able to help me. This is an activity I think my really elderly residents would enjoy. There looks to be a printed booklet of information about the program and also somewhere to purchase the hand taps. I have tried many websites and links but nothing seems available now. I would love to get hold of any information about the program and maybe even find someone who can share the booklet information or their experiences with "dancing hands". thank you in advance
The gloves they were in the tap dancing video look like they just bought regular gloves and added tap shoe parts to them.
I am going to check these resources out. What an amazing idea!
