Love all the great ideas. Love Golden Carers. I have used so many of your ideas since I started and all with great feedback with staff who like to join in too. What a difference I have seen in the residents, more joining in because of giving them time to express what they like to do and always offering for them to join in, whatever the activity. Having so much to offer but not overwhelming them, just a little at a time and someone will show their enthusiasm to give it a try. Thank you Golden Carers.
The card can become a very special keep sake and pictures of their family, friends, pets, or themselves can add a very special touch. They are often amazed how I get their photos on the card.
One client who turns 90 gave me a photo of herself when she was 2 years old and I have used this photo for the card.
