Thank you for doing all the 'ground work' for us thereby giving us more time to spend with our residents. I have started a medium size group of residents, talkers rather than doers, using armchair travel. We used the material you gave us and spent an afternoon visiting Greece, eating olives and feta cheese. I extended the activity by adding a DVD 'walking the Greek Isles'. The scenery is so stunning that I also played the DVD in the lounge for general viewing. I am creating a folder/scrap book containing pictures, postcards and information about Greece, that can be passed around for browsing amongst those residents who joined the activity as well as others (picked up a few extra catalogues at a travel agent to cut out pictures)
We are a dementia home and this activity gives the residents an opportunity to reminisce, taste or just to sit back and enjoy the DVD. Next month we are off to Australia.
