Tips for Writing Successful Activity Programs for Senior Care

Card bingo......have 2 packs, one (large size to enhance positive outcomes) for caller and the second pack divided between players. Modify depending on level of cognition/dementia but even those quite impaired can manage 8-10.
Staff assist with residents to sort their own (each will have a natural preference)
Caller starts with cards face down and calls what it is...eight of hearts whilst allowing residents to see the card and compare/pick out their card.
All cards turned over (face down or put aside) is the winner; however to promote success call out until last card is turned over.
Great game, no cost. Residents often help each other so good social interaction as well as coordination
, thinking, strategy etc
