I didn't think DT's were around anymore?
Certificate 4 in Leisure & Lifestyle is what you are looking for (in Victoria anyway). Im halfway through my Diploma in Leisure & Health at the moment ... to go further is to go to uni and do the DT course

I highly recommend the volunteer idea, great way to see if you and your personality fits in with the facility.
Same happened with me, then I found my current place and I have never looked back. Sometimes I think the residents are looking after me, not the other way around!

Word Lists for Group Games:

We have a great time with word games & brain teasers like this in high & low care. Once we have made up a list, we play HANGMAN on the whiteboard with that list.

Try to find out WHY ur residents do not want to participate. That is your first challenge ... It maybe as simple as one resident doesnt want to sit next to another particular resident, maybe they cant hear/see whats being done. And find other things for them to do. They may not have been a very social person in the past.
