I have been in this field for close to 15 years. I came across your website initially because I was searching for a shared, personal forum with other professionals in my field that was not attached to random advertising and monthly fees. After discovering your website which hosted a forum that was exactly what I was looking for, as well as providing a mountain of resources that didn’t require you to follow several external links to get to, and to top it off no monthly recurring fee...Jackpot!

Thank you so much for reliable and wonderfully presented resources for all occasions. A must-go to for all working in Aged Care homes. Our team at Parkview Aged care Home are always finding inspiration from your website. Thank you!
We now have a garden shed a volunteer and myself who assists with making wooden items. Bird feeders , birds nesting boxes,
Tiling tables. We made cat boxes for our cats to sleep in. Sort and reminisse with donations of old tools and nuts n bolts.
Ask your kitchen to save the big tins and see through cintainers with lids.
You can start with an old wooden coffee table and have the men sand it and the next week apply varnish. I was taught by Dementia Specific clients on how to apply the varnish correctly.
Yes you do need to donate or get donations to start. Put up notices or advertise in your news letters, resident and relative meetings etc..
