Love all the great ideas. Love Golden Carers. I have used so many of your ideas since I started and all with great feedback with staff who like to join in too. What a difference I have seen in the residents, more joining in because of giving them time to express what they like to do and always offering for them to join in, whatever the activity. Having so much to offer but not overwhelming them, just a little at a time and someone will show their enthusiasm to give it a try. Thank you Golden Carers.
Golden Carers is AMAZING! We use it every day in one capacity or another. It has assisted to make our jobs easier as well as stepping up our activities! Thank you for all the materials and resources, keep up the GREAT work!
Stories of special garments , their impact socially with work or as a comfort, expression of creativity , an escape or simply necessity. Sewing and cooking marked special events across culture and generations.
What younger generations see as vintage wear and appreciate were often milestones in someone’s life story, baby clothes etc that were kept and treasured , wedding gowns etc.
Stories of all types are needed - stories associated with romance, loss , hardship and career and funny stories too.
Common themes will be sewn together, mixed in with love and respect, all anonymous.
Any stories out there or anyone interested in collecting / recording them for me in a place or with individual clients.
There are many short stories and golden Carers
I hope this helps you
