Love all the great ideas. Love Golden Carers. I have used so many of your ideas since I started and all with great feedback with staff who like to join in too. What a difference I have seen in the residents, more joining in because of giving them time to express what they like to do and always offering for them to join in, whatever the activity. Having so much to offer but not overwhelming them, just a little at a time and someone will show their enthusiasm to give it a try. Thank you Golden Carers.
I have been a member of Golden Carers for several years and still find it as amazingly beneficial as the day I became a member. There are so many ideas and the support is wonderful, my job is made much easier with the help of Golden Carers.
