Fill out the form please

Fill out the form please

Most people have experience  filling out forms and this activity is a great reminder of how to do a simple life skill.  I've found this activity great for distracting those who 'want to go home', ask them to if they would mind filling out the paperwork first, sit them down, present them with a form, give them a pen, have a quick look in their care plan so you can help them with some of the info they may struggle with.

Hi Mandy
These samples may help you
You could download one in word and then modify it to meet your needs or just make one up that you want to use
You could even have an activity asking residents what they would put on an application and use their suggestions in making one

I have a resident in my dementia unit that thinks she works there. She asks me, "Why haven't I gotten a paycheck? I've been working here for a couple of years." I usually tell that I will look into this matter with our business manager. Well now, I can have her fill out hiring forms. Thanks for the great idea!

A good way to find out if the resident is literate..and a means of diversion ..I am thinking of a percific individual whos behaviour deteriates every now and him a basic clear form on a clip board to fill in would divert his interest and provide esteem and calm him well. .. I digress and think these forms might be extended to include interests and hobbies..and could be used inormally to initiate volanteers. Or with permission from family..posted on a board the community can see who is in the unit and how there life experience relates to the individuals in care. Ie shared interest in marine animals... ex-truckies ..past and present feminists,etc..could be quiet fun.

This is an interesting idea. Very few of my residents will write at all anymore, whether they're able to or not. They refuse, no matter what it is.
