I'm having a Roaring Twenties Day on Thursday, 30th July. Do you have any activities relating to this? I'm unable to find anything...its a great topic....

Hi Katja
A roaring 20s day is a very good idea
I do not see that in the calendar but that’s a good idea because we are in the 20s now
I have never done a roaring 20s day
How independent and cognitively good are the residents you are having this for??
Is your place of business impacted by COVID-19 so that people have to stay away from each other??
Here are some simple ideas
Have the residents make invitations or if they have to social distance then they could make reminders to them
Ask a trivia question about the roaring 20s On the invitation
If the resident answer the question and attends the activity then they have a chance to win a prize
Have the core group invite others who they think might be interested
You and or the residents make decorations
Collaborate with the food service director about what to serve during the day
Show the movie the great Gatsby
Perhaps we can collaborate about more ideas and share them with the golden Carers group
You could also ask this question on the golden Carers Facebook group

We did a roaring 20 murder mystery. We use black/gold decorations ETC. We served finger foods after the mystery was solved.

We are holding a great Gatsby party at our facility at the end of July. My residents have been busy making decorative head bands with feathers and sequins and garters during our craft sessions.. We will also be making bow ties for the boys. I have purchased feather boas and beads for the ladies to wear. We will be decorating our function room with gold, black table runners, table decorations and large fan and ball type decorations to dangle from the ceiling. I was lucky to organise a local choir to dress up and sing jazz songs. We are all looking forward to this event. Catering will consist of finger food and a sparkly punch.

Hi Jenny
What you are doing sounds very ambitious and creative
I am sure it was a lot of work but it will be well worth it
Thank you for sharing
