Crossword Puzzles for Group Setttings

One thing i do in the dementia wing with cross words is i get a small group and read the cross word clues to them and tell them how many letters ect they seem to respond better to this as it promotes cnversation and they try to work it out together

one thing i tryed today with the men in our dementia unit was mosaics with small tiles we glued them to the top of an old small side table and are going to use it for the visitors register book outside out dementia wing and when we get around to grouting it, going to make a presentation to the d.o.n so the men get a feeling of making something worth while, we put the name of the facility in ours but could use pictures from colouring in as a guide
