Finding this resource has saved my life! :)
Thank you so much.
Just a question - for days where I need more than 5 lines for activities, is there any other way I can get more room apart from reducing the font size?
Maurice 17th Sep 2018
Hi Linda!

There are a couple things you can do if reducing the font size isn't giving you enough room:

1. Let it spill over two pages: When entering information if you run out of space the word document will automatically spill onto a new page,

2. Print a larger page size; If you have an A3 Printer, or print can print on two A4 pieces of paper and stick them together, you'll have a lot more room to enter information.

I hope that helps!

OMG, the new calendar is fantastic, can you download the whole 12mths at once to then edit ?? love the back rounds.
Talita 8th Sep 2018
Thanks so much for your feedback Shearee! Let me get back to you on this one!
Maurice 19th Sep 2018
Hi Shearee!

Ahh that's lovely to hear, thanks for the feedback!

We removed the yearly printing option as it didn't seem very useful when using backgrounds as they all end up being the same. However I can see how it would be useful for plain calendars.

We'll take a look and see if we can add the option :)

Hi, do you know how to apply a fill effect in word to use as the background. Some columns will stay blank and not show the colour/image?
Maurice 16th Aug 2018
Hey Kelly!

We're launching new calendars very soon, I think they might do exactly what you're after :)
Teri Strebel 13th Jul 2018
Very interested in becoming a member but I need to make sure that your calendar will work with our current printing system. I need to be able to do the calendars as a word doc in landscape format and legal size (8.5 x 14). Is this format available in your downloadable and editable calendars?
Maurice 16th Jul 2018
Hey Teri!

The Word Documents should already be Legal paper size, which is 8.5 by 11 inches. So you're good to go :)

If anyone else reading ever needs to change to A4, A3, or another size, all you do is click the Layout tab, then the Size button, and finally select whichever paper size you need.

Hope it helps.

Can clip art be added to the calendar?
Maurice 27th Dec 2017
Hi Heidi, you can add clipart if you download the Word Document version!

Really keen to work on 2018 calendar, when will this be available to print?
Talita 14th Aug 2017
Hi Fiona, we have had a number of requests for this. We will be releasing the 2018 calendar in September and will make sure this is scheduled in earlier for 2019! I'll let you know as soon as it's out.

Vanessa 19th Sep 2016
I would like any ideas for activities in an Aged Care home for people with early dementia
Solange 19th Sep 2016 Diversional Therapist
Hi Vanessa, early dementia symptoms vary from person to person, which is why it is important to offer meaningful activities based on individual tastes as much as possible. If that is not practical you may try activities that stir the memory, improve motor skills, promote creativity, and make them feel included and needed. Most activities in Golden Carers are suitable for early dementia. You will be the judge as to whether activities need to be modified for safety and practicality. Activities such as puzzles, singing, painting, colouring, carpet bowling, cooking, collage, gardening and many others are a good starting point. Best wishes.
Talita 19th Sep 2016
Here is a category dedicated to dementia on the website:

Here is a good article to get started with:

All the best Vanessa.
