I want to say how happy I am that I purchase Golden Carers. The facility I am working is limited for activities for our residents with Alzheimer's and Dementia. Most everyone is in a wheel chair and have very little cognitive functions. Any suggestions on a art project.
Also in need of white board activities for the high cognitive residents. White board activities, like write a word and have them come up with words from the letters in the chosen word.
Help and thank you.

A mixed media collage is a nice activity that everyone can enjoy:

Coloring-in is also a very worthwhile activity and there are many lovely templates on the website incluidng artist emulations.

If this is too complicated just by dot Art supplies
You can even use bingo Dobbers
