Create your own ‘Left Zone’! Declare a corner of your recreation area a designated area where right-handers must be left-handers for the day!
This is one of many free activities.
Golden Carers has 1000s of activities and resources for senior care.

Create your own ‘Left Zone’! Declare a corner of your recreation area a designated area where right-handers must be left-handers for the day!

This is a fun activity and will make people aware of the difficulties left-handed people have holding utensils, tools and scissors that are all made for right-handed people.

Invite right-handed residents, their families, visitors, and staff to try to do daily tasks using their left hands.

Setup a table in your left-zone area with some activities for right handed people to try doing with their left hand:

  • Peeling vegetables
  • Cutting fabric and paper
  • Drawing a rectangle with a ruler
  • Writing their name with felt markers
  • Opening cans and bottles
  • Pouring drinks in measuring cups
  • Cutting bread
  • Cutting and pasting with a computer mouse

Save time with 1000's of meaningful
activity ideas for every occasion.

It was a great morning! The librarian was bright and cheery and brought lots of supplies? My clients with the dementia still handled most of the activities? Get in touch with your local library, they are a great resource!

We are trying this for the first time tomorrow at my new job. It was popular at my old job but my new place as a lady without a left arm so we have adjusted the day to a Braintraining day and having a visit from the local librarian. We are still having a small Left Handed Zone for those clients who may not cope well with the braintraining exercises. Will keep you in the loop
