I cant rate this site high enough. The activities and ideas are fantastic, varied and very relevant to our service. I log on every morning to see what's new and I'm always printing and using your materials. Honestly the best site I know of to provide activities for older people.
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 do not know how strict your facility is being in terms of how many people can visit if any of the residents can gather in small groups or if they have to more or less stay in their rooms
You can make copies of these poems and mail them to family members so they can read them to their grandparents on a phone call
You could have a teleconference call there are many free once you can use
You can distribute this word search
Or make your own
You may modify these activities to make them grandparents day activities
You may want to do some virtual groups such as those on zoom or create your own Facebook group
You can call family members to remind them to send cards to their loved one for grandparents day
As I said before a teleconference would be a good way to include a lot of people as long as the residents have telephones and know how to use them
You can plan a grandparents day party but do it over the phone
