Maths as a group activity in memory support is a fun group activity that has everyone engaged with confidence
Older persons maths skills are stronger than later generations
Maths was learnt by rote the rolling of black boards with times tables written up so as a group sing the 5 times tables all from memory

The game finish the proverbs
I don't use cards as many of the residents no longer have the ability to read
Using the well know proverbs I give the group the first half of the proverb encouraging residents to verbalise the finish end of that proverb this encourages them to verbalise

This is a great idea for those residents who are still able to read

Everyone sits in a group setting and I take my arm roaming from one side of the group to the other to encourage answers from both sides of the group
