Hi, Can any one who is using a WII for activities let me know what they think of their residents using it.
Iam thinking of purchasing one from Ebay and would like to know if there are any quizzes or mental stimulation games that are worth considering.I have looked at WII sports and this would be ok.

thank you for help

We also use a Wii weekly in our low-care wing. A few residents play and enjoy 10 pin bowling, and a few like to watch. Maybe try a video hire shop or game retailer locally about hiring one for a few weeks before deciding?
Our facility has used the WII but we find the residents really struggle to use it, they just don't have the ability to operate the controls. We are considering getting an XBox kinect as they can use their whole body to participate.
