I'm interested in join this wonderful website. I work with a lots of residents that speak Spanish. I was wondering if the daily chronicles can be printed in Spanish?

I really like the newsletter format because its so easy to use what I want and change or delete what I don't want. The residents enjoy the information and color pictures, jokes, and i get better every month making it as I learn how to customize it to meet the needs of our facility and residents. I had to create a puzzle for July though as there was none given. Anything new addde would be super such as month themed mind games, trivia, word games, math games, guessing games, etc.

No problems happy to help :)

These are Microsoft Word templates, there is a multi-page and single-page version. If you want to shorten the mutli-page document you simply can highlight the content and remove it as needed.

This is wonderful thank you!!! This helped me so much setting up our own Newsletter. Very easy to customize and add on to, thank you so much! Looking forward to doing this every month.
Anne 25th Jul 2020 Activity Coordinator

I loved the template!!!!
Amy 24th Jul 2020 Administrator
Love this resource! Thank you!

Dumb question...why is the Editor's letter on the awesome August newsletter template in a different language?

Anyway, as an Administrator of a new (small but growing) community, I wear MANY hats and struggle with the monthly newsletter. Thanks for this template!
Talita 24th Jul 2020
Thanks so much for your feedback Amy! 'Lorem Ipsum' is just placeholder text to show you where to place your own content.

Quoting from wikipedia:
'Lorem Ipsum' is a placeholder text commonly used to demonstrate the visual form of a document or a typeface without relying on meaningful content.

Thanks again!
Shona Anderson 24th Jul 2020
Great to see the newsletter templates but do you have one in booklet form. This is an awesome resource. This site has helped me in many ways to satisfy my residents.
Talita 24th Jul 2020
Hi Shona, thanks for your feedback! What did you have in mind with booklet form?
You could print it double-sided and then stapel it together like a booklet?
Dawn 22nd Jul 2020 Activities Coordinator
I love the newsletter ideas but do you have a shorter version of basic things like for general updates and for birthdays.
Talita 23rd Jul 2020
Hi Dawn, the next release will include a one page newsletter template too.
Cheree 22nd Jul 2020 Lifestyle Assistane
This is Great! Will there be one of these each month? Newsletters are time consuming and this would be a great help, as is the rest of this site. Thanks.

Kind Regards,

Yolanda 2nd Jul 2020 Activities Coordinator
I have just signed onto your wonderful site, The information is amazing.

As for the newsletter, is there a way to delete some of the pages, We won't necessarily
put all the information in our newsletter.

Thank You
Maurice 2nd Jul 2020
Hi Yolanda!

That's so lovely, glad to hear it :)

The easiest way to delete a page in Microsoft Word is to

1. Download the file from Golden Carers
2. Open the document
3. If you can't edit the text, click "Edit Template" at the top of the screen
4. Now, find the page/content you want to delete
5. Click and drop the content with your mouse to highlight this content
6. Press Delete on your keyboard

That should be it! Let me know how you go.
Sunya 1st Jul 2020 Activity Director
Yes please include more newsletter templates. Thanks

How do I access the monthly newsletter for July please
Lesleah 1st Jul 2020 Christian Science Nurse
Newsletter templates are helpful in at least two ways..
They are idea-inspiring as well as useful just as they are for us to adapt.
Please include more templates?
