I absolutely love this website and get most of my daily activities from it. Love the monthly diary too. It has so much to offer for different stages of dementia residents. I love the artwork, games, and quizzes which we use every day. People are constantly asking where do I get my ideas. Thank you so much!
Here are some ideas
, here are a couple of ice-breakers for your party. Hope they help and good luck!
- Ask guests to say Hi to each other and introduce themselves.
- Have the family to organize a short This is Your Life with slides of photos and significant moments in the life of the birthday person, like special memories or fun stories from the past.
- You may find some trivia from the year the person was born and read it out to guests. Find happy and fun events of that particular year.
- Play the game Do You Have...? This is a group game where items are gathered from various people encouraging interaction. The game consists of roughly dividing the guests into two groups and giving each group a list of things to produce from their pockets or handbags etc. Each group should have a leader who will shout out every time they find an item. The group with the most items wins the applause of everyone.
Items for the game Do You Have...? Use this list or make your own list.
