Brilliant idea, I have lots of donated magazines in the home so will go and buy some scrapbooks tomorrow and get started on Thursday.

I have just spent the weekend making twiddle muffs from an old fleecy blanket, some wadding and nice material. I made a padded roll that the person can put their hands in, this feels soft, warm and comforting. Inside I sewed a small bag of bean bag beads so they can 'fiddle, one myff has a small squeezy ball inside a bag ( sewn inside) On the outside I have sewn ribbons, beads on ribbon, small tinkly bells, zips, toggles, buttoned velcro strips. I would post photos but not sure how to. I have been looking these up on the internet and the ones on offer are childish and not thought out. Plus they are very very expensive! I am taking two to work on Tuesday to try them out and will post back to let you know how I got on:)

Volunteer's Handbook

I have just embarked on starting up a volunteers program. This handbook is a great idea and I will be adapting it for our home. So far i have volunteers coming in with their pets, a donkey, classic cars, poetry readings, singing, telling stories and just having chats... wonderful:)

@catherine.... I run pottery and card making classes each week but have found it is the same group of residents that take part.This week I tried taking activities around to smaller groups for half an hour at a time. Everyone this week took part in various things and said they prefered this way of doing it. What type of activities do you do with your dementia residents.... jan
