Hi I've been told I have to do a monthly activity calendar.
No idea ,please help x

There are lots of examples of monthly calendars on here, have a look at the style you want and then at the demographics of your community.
Consider : full month or weekly? Large Icons with Pictures?
I suggest doing a quick survey of your residents to find out what kind of things they like to do. Have a look at their life stories, old assessments, program evaluations etc, and start your building block with a few Core groups.
Bingo, Hoy and Card Games - always a winner
Seated Exercises, Tai Chi, Yoga, Excercise with weights - Mornings
Walking Group - Mornings
You want to throw in a Craft of some sort, considering the time of year Card Making
Movie or Coffee Club.
Hope this helps

Hi Michelle

I use the template in the calendar section from golden carers. It really helped me to set up the style and content we were looking for when we redesigned our newsletter.

Enjoy the ideas from them each month.
