hi Michelle
The benefits of doing activities are to meet the individual need of the resident so if you do an exercise fun group you would be promoting full body movements to the capabilities of each person you would be promoting hand and eye coordination and fun and laughter. if you were doing music sing a long you would be enhancing reminiscence you would be promoting olfactory memories which in turn promotes story telling and socialisation and is always great fun .
these are a few i hope this gives you an idea , i would be happy to write out a detailed list for you if you like just leave a message on this page i will keep a look out for it
the very best of luck to you
