Price is Right - UK Edition - 1970's vs 2022

I do this by purchasing a few items, (save the receipt for proof of cost)
Then print/write a shopping list to give to clients. They then put the price they think each item costs and then total the cost of the list. This gives you time to chat about the items. The nearest to the receipt cost wins the goods.

Fish stories. Sit around the Fish tank and have each resident say one sentence about the fish. The activity associate writes down each line until they have, as a group, created a story about the fishes in the tank.

Crooner Lyrics Quiz

Hi Linda! :)

We are working on some exciting features to better integrate these kinds of media. In the meantime, this should hopefully solve your issue:

1. On the playlist above, click the Spotify logo in the top righ. That will open a new browser tab, and should prompt you to "Open Spotify"

2. Open opened, as long as you have Spotify installed on your computer, it should open your Spotify program and show you the Crooner Lyrics Quiz playlist we've created

3. Now all you need to do is click the dots menu (to the right of the play button), and click "Add To Library"

That's it - now it's been added to your account as a playlist. I hope that helps!

Crooner Lyrics Quiz

This playlist for the Old Crooners is amazing! Oh, how
I wish I could bring it to my ol'folks.
I've tried saving it to Spotify, but I can't get on Spotify
because I have another program ??? which they say competes with
them???
I've tried learning how to create my own playlist without lyrics, but
couldn't accomplish getting it on Power Point.
Any suggestions?
Maybe a good idea for Golden Carers would be to offer classes on how to replicate some of the sophisticated programs you offer. I can't imagine that it would effect your subscriptions negatively.....
Worth a thought!

Newsletter Template - June 2022

I thank you so much for having these newsletters! My residents and their families just love it and I like how I can just add and edit to my liking!

Just a couple things I noticed (not a big deal) but Father's Day is June 19th (not 22nd) and, on the "Noticeboard" under :new staff" it usually states "foes" instead of "goes" (on all the past newsletters I noticed). But again, it is not a biggie!!

I appreciate all you do on this site, and love it with the ideas and things to do when I am stuck!! :)

Typical British words and phrases

Hi,
I'm English through and through. My family were all cockneys. Not me though, I was born in Camebridge because my family were running a pub/resturant there.

Just so you know..
a tenner is actually £10...(the clue is in the question) as in a fiver is £5. BTW we don't say twentyer :D

other monetry terms are
a pony... £25
a monkey... £500
dough
dosh
smackers
bread and honey
bangers and mash
penny pincher...tight with their money.

oh and spend a penny ??.... nope! it's not that! ....it's to have a wee.
I Love England... we're so weird lol... waves imaginary patriotic flag
