Golden Carers has been such a help to increase the range of activity sessions that we provide. Our residents love so many of the activities that are on here. It is also lovely that we can share our own idea's to help others. I am so glad that we signed up to Golden Carers - I am always recommending it to other activity coordinators locally.
I was wondering if anyone else using them and if so would they like to share apps they use.
Our apps we are trying are as follows:
Lets create pottery (will be purchasing residents interacted well)
Life time talks (purchased - excellent reminiscence app)
gaze- visual pictures with sound (purchased, resident really enjoyed watching and hearing rain, snow and window plus watching the fire burn- you actually hear the wood crackling)
jigsaw box (purchased - excellent can take a picture of resident then turn into puzzle... residents loved seeing their faces as the finished product)
jigsaw 123 (purchased - worked well with high cognitive impaired residents)
