Hello! I need some help. I work in an assisted living center with about 64 residents. we couldn't celebrate the holidays like we usually do, due to us being on lock down we have finally reopened, and they are upset about not being able to celebrate. I want to have some sort of celebration with prizes but have no idea what to do. Can anyone help me?

I have had a lot of success doing a prize giving day with party snacks and presenting those residents who have made a contribution to your community with a certificate. Eg I have a lady who tries to take 1 or 2 cups to the kitchen to be washed, another who is quick to befriend new residents when they come in, 1 who always joins in the exersize session, 1 who is passionate about watering the plants in the lounge. They all have dementia so don't always do a great job but they are trying. Many of the family members saw the certificates and passed positive comments.

do you have a in house channel. If so I've found a bunch of art and history programs that I run through there. also pub trivia is fun
