Sing-Along with Picture Cards

I have also done this with Irish Songs, colours, flowers, war songs, seniors songs, love, Scottish songs, Australiana, summer/ocean, places we travel to, Disney classics, Movie musical classics, weather, novelty songs, dancing songs, T.V themes, clothes, celebrations eg Easter, animals and birds, girls names, boys names, English songs, nursery rhymes, numbers, drinking songs and advertising jingles (which was a huge list). Hope this helps give people more ideas. More or less giving hints too rather than pictures.

Cheers Jo

Activities for the Baby Boomer Generation

Love that we are now acknowledging the baby boomers. We are starting to see younger onset dementia residents coming into various facilities and to have on hand activities that are for their generation is a bonus. We are constantly needing to change our current activities to cater for the baby boomers as has been previously mentioned, most activities cater for the 75 to 90 yr old age bracket. Thanks Solange for giving us food for thought.

ANZAC Day Service

Don't forget to include the New Zealand national anthem too, as this is what the NZ in ANZAC stands for.
