Hi! New to my position in Activities and new to Golden Carers!

At our facility we have orientation for our new hires- each department head discusses our department- was wondering what fun things other facilities do at their orientations to make it more fun and interesting!

Hello Marady,
I am in the same position as you, new to the Lesure and Lifestyle role, I have found a few things through this site and on the web, I have just introduced , balloon tennis (fly swats and balloons) our residents love this, as well as Ball drums, large exercise balls in a basket and music they can hit the beat too.
I have just purchased a set of three dice and looking for ideas, the dice are large around 12 inches square.

have fun Bobbie

Where did you purchase your baskets and balls? I have a very slim budget and would love to incorporate this!

Also, Oriental Trading has some good buys
