I have been working on this idea Rosemary - 'seated dancing' to music doing dances that residents would be familiar with. One site I've found to play with is https://www.youtube.com/watch/?v=8mAA9qNSTo4. I've been thinking about using the idea of tap dancing to songs like 'raindrops keep falling on my head', and doing the cha-cha for a bit of an up-beat version to 'sway' by Dean Martin. Perhaps giving them a boa to include arm movement. 'Shall we dance' is the popular cha-cha i had in mind, using maracas. Please share ideas. Cheers, Kym

Hi. My time is always spent with residents in a group, from 10 to 15 different participants at a time, 3 days a week. I would like to know how to introduce one-on-one time, with so many residents to attend to, or how to decide which residents get one-on-one time. Residents are semi-dependent, some have times when they are 'room-bound', either by necessity or choice. I'd like to spend the time i have to maximum benefit, but have never done any one-to-one contact, aside from short social visits etc. Hope to get some advice. Kym :)

Do you write them out on a board? I'm not sure i'd have access to one, and was wondering if giving out pencil & paper would be enough, or just discussion
