The pictures shown here on golden carers are lovely scenes. They are busy pictures with a lot of detail. I have found using the works of australian artist drysdale the residents had great success in being the photo copies to life. There is still a lot of detail in his works however they are more open in the details. The drivers wife looks so simple a closer look reveals the details required

10 Sensory Activities for Men

I find footy tipping for the entire season is very time consuming. I do footy tipping only on the main games and make payouts for those games featured for footy tipping all tips are gathered the game played and the winners paid it's is $1 to play per tip
It's quick it engages those playing as well as those watching the tippers picks

I have heard many requests for ways to distinguish courtyard/garden entrances /areas to assist our resident orient thier way around thier community homes. We may not like them but knounes garden ordaments,and cement animals statues of frogs, kangaroos were very fashionable at that time. So perhaps we should apply these past experiences,passions (they were collectables) for some folk into our workplace gardens one a knounes garden another cement couple of kangaroos and make that distinguish areas to help the residents who live there

Hi Nicole
Perhaps a more permanent memento of residents that have passed would be a remembrance book each page showing a picture of that resident that has passed thier life story and room for other residents to write thier message it's also a great way of mourning
I have one in place has been for 8years in a scrape book

Growing Cotton Plants for Memory Support

Hello all
For those asking where to purchase cotton seeds. Go to a produce store that sells livestock feed. They feed cotton seed to livestock. So buy the seeds from the produce it will be cheaper than online. I got mine from a friend who runs cattle he gave me a couple of hand fulls that's all you need
The cotton plants we have are now covered with cotton balls it is a interesting plant. Enjoy. Read up on the growth cycle it will help you understand it's development.
