I love Golden Carers! When I first became an ‘Activity Aide’ I spent hours scouring the internet looking for meaningful activities for elders experiencing cognitive decline. I finally found ‘Golden Carers’! I’ve passed along ’the find’ to the Activity Director of where I work. Thank you again for all that you do - Golden Carers is much more than a great resource for activities - it’s an education on how to provide ‘life’ to both workers and our elders.
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.
It may be too late but any resident who is registered to vote please help them
After that you have to keep things neutral because this year especially the Democrats and Republicans are really at odds with each other
You could talk about past elections or past presidents
like George Washington or Abraham Lincoln or if a president was born in your state
First of all congratulations on joining this wonderful group
As you may have noticed there are many intelligent creative members here
I have some more ideas
You may want to use some ideas that you used for the Fourth of July to make your facility look patriotic
You may want to talk about patriotism and sing some patriotic songs
If you need more ideas let me know
Word searches, word scramble and even a board game “ Race to the White House”. There are also 2 different election Bingo games available. Hope this helps.
Thank you so much for this information it should be a big help
