This is my go to site. I have looked at the others, but Golden Carers has a sense of fun and creativity that makes the activities we do enjoyable for all. They are adaptable for all levels. We did the Olympic Day and had a blast. Everyone got up and participated !!! Thank you.

Management wish to review our staffing levels in activities and hours etc. I would very much appreciate it if anyone would share with me how they work their programs and amount of staffing they have to make it work. For example number of residents and how big is your team? It would really help me if I knew how others do it when discussing possibilities with management. Thanks!
