I love Golden Carers! When I first became an ‘Activity Aide’ I spent hours scouring the internet looking for meaningful activities for elders experiencing cognitive decline. I finally found ‘Golden Carers’! I’ve passed along ’the find’ to the Activity Director of where I work. Thank you again for all that you do - Golden Carers is much more than a great resource for activities - it’s an education on how to provide ‘life’ to both workers and our elders.
Your site is easy to use, I use it more often than the one our consultant has set up! I use so many of your ideas and love the Facebook page where everyone shares ideas, concerns and triumphs! I feel connected to a big wonderful caring society! I am always telling my co-workers how awesome Golden Carers is. I feel it is more in touch with the needs of my residents than many of the other Recreational Therapy sites.
It depends on the abilities and capabilities of your clients. Golden Carers has easy crafts and more intricate crafts. Also I would recommend you pick a theme or a date to celebrate; it is easier to organize, here are a few suggestions:
Christmas in July - Paper Stained Glass - Colouring Christmas Angel - Popsicle Christmas Star - Recycled jigsaw
June Celebrations - World Ocean Day Poster - Recycled Fish Mobile
July Celebrations - Preserved Fall leaves
Themes - World Cup - Brazilian art templates
