How to motivate residents in long term care

I have a suggestion for Lyn. Purchase a copy of \"Montesssori-Based Activities for Persons with Dementia\" \"Volune 2\". The book has 96 A4 size pages and is clearly written and explained. The book is available at any of the conferences for Diversional Therapists, but I bought mine on EBAY for a lot cheaper than you can get it elsewhere. It is still very expensive, (about $80-00) but it sounds exactly the book for you. It has activities for individuals, groups, men specific, and a section on rehab activities. Definately worth checking it out. Cheers Wendy

How to motivate residents in long term care

This is great. Common sense; but seeing it in writing is a great motivator to continue prompting the residents to participate. Well done Tania.
