I have just gained a position in a respite house with limited space. Also clients do not live there but spend a day sometimes 2 or 3 days. Am interested in suggestions.

Are your clients having respite from being a carer of a relative with dementia? do a leisure profile for your clients even if brief will guide you in a choice of person centred activities
Good recreation activities are cards, board games, newspapers and magazines. Try some outside activities enjoying the garden etc, encourage help with the meal and suggestions on what to cook.
However if your clients are very frail or have dementia you might need to plan some sensory activities and activities related to their level of cognition.
