Hi everyone, iv got a question for u, I have been a D.T for 2 and a half years and have just this week changed jobs and I have gone from working in a rest home to working in a day care unit for the disabled, the house that I am working in is high care, soooo different from working with dementia, does anyone have any suggestions for activities, noting that a lot of these clients don't respond to a lot of the activities im used 2 doing, (HELP), And a lot of them don't respond at all xx

hi there, iv just been told i have to change my activites calendar again, as its good but not good enough, have been working at the same place 2yrs now and management are always wanting me to change it as they think its not good enought!!! Anyhow they are wanting me to do more outings so the residents are seen out in the community more, at least once a week, so ideas on were u take your ressies when on an outing would be greatfully received, cheers in advance from a slightly frustrated D.T xx

Mandalas

We have started these in our facility, in the rest home and also in the secure wing, they are very good for calming the mind, and like i tell all the residents, it dosnt matter which colours you choose they still look fantastic, we have been colouring them in, then glueing them onto cardboard, cutting them out and then glueing 2 of them back to back, putting a hole in the top, threading threw some string and then hanging them from the cealing in the lounge areas, the residents just love them, and we have had requests also for them to be hung in their rooms. Very very popular activitie x
