Hello, I have just renewed my membership after spending a year with Golden Carers. My residents in the home where I am Activities leader have totally enjoyed all the activities I have used from your website. I have used your newsletter templates, quizzes, word games, "This Day in History", painting pages, seasonal topics, and many more. Keep up the good work in helping us provide meaningful care for our precious residents that we are privileged to look after ✨️

I appreciate how accessible everything is to create worthwhile, mind-opening, engaging absolutely wonderful activities for our friends. Our calendars are overflowing with so much variety their is something for everyone, every day. Thank you so much for helping me to create days that always bring something for everyone to look forward to. They are engaged, active, laughing and living life to its fullest because of you there are endless possibilities.
I'm fresh out of school and this is something I have yet to do!
I am still looking into video instructions but engaging the residents is something I can address
First this article on golden Carers is for men however you can use many of these ideas to engage all residents
You need to know your residents likes and dislikes
Also you need to know their abilities
You do not want to provide activities and no one life or that no one can do
You may have to adapt and modify the activities to meet the needs of your residents
I find I need to adapt most activities so that the residents enjoy them
Sometime to get residents who are hesitant to engage in an activity this article may help you with that problem
If you have any more questions feel free to ask them we are here to help
