I appreciate the time and effort you put into finding and creating activities for seniors. I especially appreciate the freebies as I am a volunteer which implies I do not receive a paycheck so I really count on the free items your site offers and put them to good use at the PC and Dementia facility I volunteer at.

Golden Carers has researched articles on dementia activities, men’s activities, dealing with challenging behaviour, and more. Thank you for a great web site. Professional! Informative! Well researched! Innovative!
I am also doing some "how it's made" shows looking at things we use everyday and how they are made. This too is another activity the residents enjoy because after watching we have a discussion on what they just saw.
Thank you Golden Carers. You've made creating activities easy.
Thank you for your kind words
It sounds to me like you are a very creative person
You must be a great activity, Director
Your residents are f very lucky
Can you suggest some "how it's made" shows or links? I think my people would really love that! It's a great idea!
I choose things that they use and see every day like: how ice cream is made, things like wheel chair, kayak, potato chips, fireworks. The residents were fascinated as how these things were made. When I am on a break I look for things that might interest them and save to the library for future use.
I am more that happy to guide you. How it's made is not on this site, that's on you tube. So google you tube and when it comes up go to their search tab and type in how it's made. There are many to choose from so you can review that ones that you think your residents will like and save it in your library, then when you are ready to play the videos you go to your history and play. You will not need to talk about the video because everything is explained about the items that are being made. There is also one that is called Modern Marvels which is as good as How it's made. If you are still having trouble with getting it done please do not hesitate to reach our.
I am happy for you and please keep me updated as to how things are going. If you have questions on anything do not hesitate to send me a message.'
