Good Morning, I am a director of Memory Care for a long term company and I have two female residents that continuously wander around. So far our attempts at getting them to engage in activities are very short lived. They often wander into others rooms, which can cause issues at times. Does anyone have suggestions? Thank you in advance.

Hey Gretchen
Can be a difficult situation
Have you tried a walking club
Would need a volunteer or staff member to accompany the residents
Some residents just like to wander so as long as they are safe and fairly steady on their feet you could just call the activity a walking club
Hopefully you can get someone to help you
Maybe some other residents will be interested in walking too Then you could ask trivia questions or sing as they are walking
Article could be helpful too
