10 Sensory Activities for Men

Try focusing on your Veterans once in awhile. Try to get them to think about Induction Day when they had to get their physical and pack up to go to Boot Camp. Also, get them to talk and reflect about the time they spent in Boot Camp, and then once they got to their first Duty Station.

Poems for Volunteers

I absolutely love all the support you provide to me as a Wellness Director. I love great programming and appreciate all you do to make it a little easier for me to provide this. It takes a lot of time to research and put together information for great programs that will engage the residents. I love it so much that I have this at home on my own computer. I made this investment because I can work from home on special programming for the community.
Thanks to Libbi Hash, our communities know about this and can take advantage of the resources.

Finish the Song Titles #2

Hello Nancy, glad you liked my list of songs,I love all these, heres the lyrics of two of them:
Let me call you sweetheart, I'm in love with you.
Let me hear you whisper that you love me too.
Keep the love light glowing in your eyes so true.
Let me call you sweetheart, I'm in love with you.
_________________________________________________________________________________________________
I wonder who's kissing her now,
Wonder who's teaching her how,
Wonder who's looking into her eyes,
Breathing sighs, telling lies,
I wonder who's buying the wine,
For lips that I used to call mine,
Wonder if she ever tells him of me,
I wonder who's kissing her now.
_______________________________________________________________________________________________
If you want more Nancy let me know and I will try and get more out to you. Gwyneth

Guess the Word Whiteboard Game

We play this game, however it is not as involved.
We just pick a word, it could be a person place or thing and put marks on the board (------) for however many letters or numbers there are and the resies have to guess the letters to spell out the word.
The only rule is that they are not allowed to go ABCDE and so on. That spoils the fun and the game is over too quick.
The resies actually love it.
Another word game we have is Build a Word which is simply choosing a long complicated word and find as many words as you can from it. The good thing about this game is that often when you find one word you find another word within it. And you can only use the letters provided.
Also we play a game where the resies pick a letter from the alphabet and they have to find as many words as they can from it, this one creates a lot laughs because some people want to put inappropriate words in. Our record so far is 416 with the letter T.

Australia day Quiz 2

Thank you so much for the Australian section with all the quizzes and ideas.
We have enjoyed many other topics too. However I suppose there's 'no place like home'.
Your website is helpful and you have provided just the right levels of difficulty, so that I can choose for our group quizzes that are fun to get right, as well as a bit of a challenge, with information to learn.

Your Department's Role in End of Life Support

I do believe our response must be relevant to their spiritual beliefs. Therefore we should get familiar with their beliefs when this time seems to be approaching.
