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,

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.
