We have been a member of Golden Carers for the past 5 years and honestly, it makes our lives here both easier and more interesting!!! The hours it saves us when planning activities for our residents result in delivering quality activities. Our residents love the word searches and crosswords and the armchair travels have brought happy memories of holidays. Thank you for all you do!
We stick this to our residents rollator frame seat or hang it on their walking frame so it is readily accessible. Everytime they get agitated or asking "where is" questions we point to the card and read it.
Just a note: This also works for residents who continually ask about the time (state where the clock is so they can look for themselves) ask about meals etc (write times of each meal etc).
Also get in touch with the Dementia Behaviour Management Advisory Service.
