An amazing resource for anyone looking for ways to enrich the lives of the elderly. You provide an invaluable resource for anyone caring for the elderly, and I have appreciated every moment of our association.
I was hesitant at first to sign up for another website for activities, but I have been pleasantly surprised. It has been fun to search all you have to offer and during Covid-19 your site has helped me and our other Life Enrichment Coordinator so much. I truly appreciate all you do and provide. It just gets better all the time. Our residents love the word searches because they are so bold and clear. We have used many of your ideas and I’m so grateful! Thank you!
The calendars on Golden Carers are purely templates, so you need to add activities each month separately.
We have another system called Toolkit:
This system lets you set up an activity schedule and then download the templates anytime you like. You can read more about it here:
The best part is the Activity and Calendar features are free for all existing Golden Carers members :)
If you're using the printables on Golden Carers, then once you've printed off a calendar and filled it in, you can save the file and re-print it. But it's just like any other word document or PDF file, you have to maintain it yourself.
If you use Toolkit, you can set up your activity schedule once with repeating activities, and then print future months as you need them :)
Hope that was a bit more clear!
That's great to hear! :)
1. Go to the Monthly Calendars page, here is the link:
2. Click the blue button "+ Add Activity"in the top left of the screen
3. Enter an activity name, date, and time
4. Next, click "Repeats", and change it from "Never" to whatever repeating option you'd like:
5. You can optionally set an "Ends on" date if you like
And that's it! There are other options, like assigning it to a client, or a staff member, but this is the best way to get started.
Non-Repeating activities can be edited by clicking on them, Repeating Activites can be updated by click the "Options" button on the calendar screen, and then click "Repeating Activities".
I can highly recommend watching the Quick Start video a few times if you're struggling:
The video is a little out of date, we will be updating it soon once we release some new features.
Let me know if you have any other questions, happy to help!
