Left-Handers Game

In my immediate family, all four of the girls are left-handed, and our brothers are both right-handed. We also have two uncles who are/were left-handed. My uncle would often greet me with some little left-handed quip, such as "We were all born right-handed - only some of us got over it" (that's my favorite). And, of course, left-handed people are the only ones in their right minds.
And another bit of trivia: "Gauche" (pronounced with a long "o" vowel sound) is the French word for "left." Did you ever hear anyone say "that's so gauche" or "how gauche"? Phrases like that are generally used in a derogatory way. Because, being left-handed was once considered anywhere from being a handicap to being of the devil.
Thanks for this activity idea! and thanks for this wonderful website!

8 Creative Ways to Use an iPad in Nursing Home Settings

I use my iPad to turn my voice into words for someone who is completely deaf. As this only happened in her nineties the guest doesn't have an established alternative way to communicate. If I make a new note and only use the heading area, which is in bold type, she is able to read what I've just said. This makes her feel much more included in our group activities.

Sample Weekly Program for Memory Care

Hi like the idea of a weekly program.I run the activities in a residential home..most of my seniors are at the end stage dementia...I try and do the group ideas..but mostly it's 1 on 1. Can you give me ideas that worked for your residents who are not mobile.That is they stay in the same chair or are in a wheelchair. I think I will change my routine from a week theme to a day theme. Also it's really hard..some days go like clock work and the next looks and feels like you have achieved nothing...all ideas are welcome,specially for the almost blind clients
and after 2pm is difficult to do activities. thanks
