Hi, I saw a training film years ago about a facility who had staff take on a resident's role for the day, be in a wheelchair, act out their behaviours - calling out, rocking, etc, be fed, wait to go to the toilet. I found this film very interesting and have always remembered it. Does anyone else remember it and know where I could get a copy of it to show our staff. Thanks.

I am very lucky where I work, except never having enough time to do all things properly. But another Lifestyle Manager gave me this advice, to do the best you can at the time and don't be hard on yourself. I love working in aged care, previous job was in a bank and now consider myself very lucky to have the job I have. So I try to stay positive and I have worked as a carer in disability so understand a bit about the care side, so try to help out when I can. I always say we don't get paid much so lets have a pleasant working environment, be nice to and support each other.

If you run a AFL football tipping competition with your residents. The season start next Thursday 24th March 2011. I charge $5 for the season though you can run a free one. I hand out a weekly tipping sheet with last week's results and the ladder on the back. A resident is helping to check the results. It is a lot of fun.

Recycled Hoy Game

I have taken the aces out of the pack as ace and eight can sound the same and residents sometimes get confused.

Horse Racing Sweepstakes

Hi, I printed out your sweeps and completed about 5 of them. When I drew the horses, I found out you have only 23 lines on the sweep and there is 24 horses.
