Hi Gail,
I brought my chair dancing DVD from America last year. Its "Dancing through the decades" and it cost me about $28 including postage. You can also buy chair yoga and chair stretching. Most of my residents are high care and they really enjoy it. I always sit out front and do the session without using my legs, so my residents have confidence in themselves that they can do it also. The web link is http://www.chairdancing.com/. Goodluck

How to celebrate Australia Day

This is our Australia Day activities. The staff joined in the parade and we played thong throw, egg and spoon race, a giant map of Oz that we placed iconic pictures in the right state. The kitchen did an Australian menu and I decorated the room with pictures I had painted. I also came as "Louie the fly", which we sang along to, as well as other songs.

How to celebrate Australia Day

I decorated our room with Aussie picture I painted, eg: Dunny with a red back and a sign post with different towns and distance to them. The table decorations were Balloon holder with a flag and two gripping koalas. We had the staff dress up for a parade and played thong throw, egg and spoon race, sing-a-long and also had a giant map of Australia and had to place pictures of iconic landmarks on it.
