Hi All
I am looking for ideas for Christmas gifts - I have 86 residents at all different levels. PLease Please let me know what you are up to this year of 2015 - especially ideas in gifts for people living with Dementia.
I do not want anything to make or items that are time consuming.
Roughly about $10 per resident.
Thanks All in Advance

Ah that is a great idea Cathy to use a pillow slip or similar to fit over a tray table for residents who are in gel chairs. I am going to look into that.
Cheers

Sample Activities Calendars

Can someone post a 7 day week (Mon - Sun) Monthly calendar template. I already have my Mon to Friday program, but we are now going to Mon - Sun & I am having trouble making it fit in.

I would be very careful when writing in progress notes stating ' Resident ENJOYED the activity ' If I observed that they looked like they enjoyed the activity, I will write 'Resident SEEMED to enjoy the activity'. The only time I will write the resident enjoyed the activity is only if the resident stated that to me verbally....therefore this is fact. Never assume residents enjoy an activity by observation only - I have had accreditors ask 'How do I know that resident enjoyed the activity ?

Living Eggs Program

I have done this twice this year with my residents. A member of our community loaned us an incubator & a friend gave us the eggs, therefore this cost us nothing. We all had a wonderful time & enjoyed the experience. This is worth doing - to see the enjoyment & smiles on all the residents faces was worth it....even if we had a 21 day wait.

Hi Susan
At the beginning of the season you will get the tipping sheet in your newspaper. I print out weekly each round for the residents to fill out. I get these back by Friday each week. On Tuesdays I will tally up the scores. I give 2 points for each win - I then add these up & place on the score sheet. Each week you add up the new score with last weeks score & it will keep going for 36 weeks. I haven't asked for any money, but some will ask for example $1 per round .....I hope that explains it !
