Hi everyone,

I know it's a bit early, but as you know we always have to start planning months in advance if we have any special events.

I was wondering if anyone would have any ideas for Valentine's Day? Last year we had a Valentine's Ball with a 4 course meal and concert on Valentine's Day night. I'd like to something again in 2014, and was hoping to get some ideas of what other Lifestyle/RAO's etc do?

hi Amanda
have you thought of creating a remainicance activity , instead of valantines day have "My wedding day" put up photos of the residents wedding day and get some stories from them there wedding music choose some songs from the residents list and have printed words and sing a long to the music creating the stories of each person .you could also have a wedding cake and set the tables for lunch like a wedding reception , anyway that is onr idea hope that helps.

I have organised for a ballroom dancing couple to come in and perform for us and in the last 20 minutes to get the residents up and dancing or do wheelchair dancing. I did it last year for mothers day and it was an absolute hit! We discovered we had some ex dancing living with us!
