Hi Everyone,
I am trying to set up a mobile shop that I can take to the different wings of our home.
Has anyone any ideas on what to stock on the trolley. I do shopping for people weekly but Management want a mobile one.
I have a list of what my regulars buy but need some other ideas that may interest other Residents.
Thank you for any suggestions

Hi Sue, I would stock with things like hankies, women's magazines, biscuits, Crisps, combs, bobby pins, chocolate, socks in winter, paper fans in summer, Homemade Lemonade, birthday cards, colognes, Talcum powder, etc. Soon you will find out what is missing in the trolley via the requests.

an old thread....however wanted to share...look up Bearclaw...on youtube. seniors exercise music. i have been using it for years now. Great beat...make up your own routine. i typically only use 4 different movements and repeat or they get lost within it...:-) my residents love it.
have fun!
