HI Donna, Where did you do "Child representaion therapy" at ? As I have found it impossible to find any recognised course.

We do a beer & bowling activity and it is very successful.
We have a bowling set up and use our dining room tables so they don't have to bend so much. We use 2 tables together and usually do out outside in our garden courtyard and there is a bit of dip which makes it easier to knock down the pins also. We have beers, shandies and nibbles served to make it more sociable. One of my residents helps set it up, runs the game and keeps score which he loves, very empowering for them.

As Lauretta, I am also a RAO and prior AIN. At my facility I am a RAO who has only 10 Dementia residents to look after and I also do some personal care. And I don't mind if a resident needs toileting, feeding or even showering, I did it before gaining my Cert IV in Leisure & Health in the facilty. By helping also builds a good working environment with other care staff and I enjoy the extra time with my residents, I just think of them as extended family.
