We were in the midst of starting something similar at our facility just as covid19 came and turned everything upside down. Here is a sample that I did of myself when pitching the idea to our CEO who thought it was a wonderful idea. These will be framed and hung inside the room next to the transfer/residents information. These will give all staff, especially new staff prompts to engage in conversation about something close to the heart of the resident creating interest and common ground.

What a great idea. I work in a centre with clients before they get to the Nursing Homes and l think it would be a great idea to start now, whilst they can have all the input into what they want in their book or on their poster. Many thanks,

I love the 'Key to Me' form, that's a great idea. Thanks so much for the feedback Deidre!

Thank you so much for the great idea! Our Resident's families together with the Resident fill out a "Key to me" form when they arrive that contains a lot of the information for us to start to get to know them. Then Lifestyle staff have ongoing conversations with the Resident to get to know them more personally, but I love this idea of a visual activity that everyone can use to connect..... I know the Lifestyle staff will enjoy putting these together with our Residents!

Hi. This sounds like a wonderful initative. Do you have a picture of a finished life reflection poster?

I work with clients in the community. We recently asked all clients to submit a photo of themselves either as a child or young adult. We also asked for a "few words of wisdom for the younger generation. The result was a wonderful collection of photos and "advice' which we made into a large collage. This now hangs in the foyer of our office and is a great talking point.
