International Nurses Day Word Search

Thank you so much for all of your wonderful ideas and resources. I have only been an activities officer for 8 mths and I have a lot to learn. I started off relieving across the whole facility (High, Dementia and Low Care) but am now permanent in low care. A comment about the fonts used in these Word Searches, could you used Comic Sans or something thicker quite a few of my residents have Macular Degeneration and their eyesight is poor. Thanks Again.

Carpet Bowls Game for Seniors

We love Carpet Bowls at our centre. We use Bocce balls instead of regular carpet bowls because they are different colours and some of our residents have Macular Degeneration. It is always lots of fun not just for the players but for the observers. One of our regulars will turn up in his Bowls jacket and hat from when he was a competitive bowler.
