I am starting my 2nd day as a Life Enrichment Coordinator and am loving it. I subscribed to your site to learn more about the assisted living world. I am loving the hands-on ideas and thoughtful articles. Thank you!!

I start off with the white board and write up missing letter words for residents to study and then hang the butcher game.
I like to use the same list for the day with never too old to learn books and at present I use word search books for word lists but these are usually from overseas, so not always useful.
The list topics are Victorian towns, World cities, By the beach, In the office, Cars, food etc.
Printed lists which are specific to this use would be fantastic.
They only need to have about 12 words ranging up to 10 or 12 letters.

Thanks for this idea, we are working on some word lists based on your suggestion. Will keep you posted.
