Thank you for the resources provided on Golden Carers. I found them immensely valuable, relevant and worthwhile. Educational and updated information provided. Great activity ideas and suggestions. The activities presented are appropriate and can be adapted to different client groups in any English speaking country. It is easy to read and understand the instructions and explanations.
Marilyn Willock-James Activity Officer United Kingdom
Thank you for many years of wonderful ideas that you have given me through Golden Carers. Your ideas and opportunities for networking with other activities people have been a great resource for me to access. Wishing your wonderful organisation all the best.
What I do is have the activity and then give food out at the end that way the residents have to stay for the activity if they want the food
Bring this up at the resident council meeting to see if you can get some feedback and then act on that
I had a list of things that I would say to the residents if they did not want to come
AnyThing from your family wants you to come to your doctor says you should to the therapist said you should
Also invite their family to come
There will be ian article coming out soon that addresses this very issue Be on the lookout for it
