Thank you for the `Create your own Crossword' template, I have just used it to make a `Chocolate' crossword for World Chocolate day. Golden Carers is a wonderful resource

I did a word search just for the Residents and then one for the staff and they just loved it. This time I made the crossword about the staff and facility and they want more. It's really great at this Covid time to have extra fun things for staff

Another idea is to have the high functioning residents create a puzzle for the lower functioning residents

Hi Trish
Here is a thought
You could create puzzles that you can print out and is there in large them I draw them on the whiteboard
For those who do not wish to come to the group or cannot you can hand out puzzles to them and see how they do

Thank you so much for the crossord puzzle maker. This is going to help me a lot. I have to hand draw the puzzle on the white board, and with only a small amount of questions, I can draw it quicker. The puzzles are easy, but I'm with skilled/dementia/Alzheimer residents in the morning and higher functioning residents in the afternoon. I will create something for them at a later date! Thanks again.
