Thank you for the resources provided on Golden Carers. I found them immensely valuable, relevant and worthwhile. Educational and updated information provided. Great activity ideas and suggestions. The activities presented are appropriate and can be adapted to different client groups in any English speaking country. It is easy to read and understand the instructions and explanations.
My team all dressed up as pirates and residents wore eye patches (cut out printed paper and elastic) and temporary tattoos.
We marked the day with pirate quizzes, a wheelchair sword fight (foam), changed our Aussie flag to the jolly roger, watched the movie 'Pirates of the Carribbean' and sang some rollicking sea shanties. What shall we do with that drunkenâ€™ sailor?! The day concluded with a swashbuckling outdoor party complete with rum balls and a cursed pirate ship (cardboard & crepe paper) for residents to destroy with cannon balls (wet newspaper). Arrrrr!
