The Great Australian Dunny

Solange,
I would also like to add the great fun I had with residents as a group was reciting the first 3 words of a nursery rhyme & they would continue on as a team.
"Humpty Dumpty fell" & residents would continue on, I would do approximately 15 nursery
rhymes before I done a word game.
Memories are great for our elderly

The Great Australian Dunny

I feel poetry is not used enough in Aged Care: I would place on my daily program at least one poem to read before some activity.
It may not have been a significant poem for that day, but residents enjoyed it

Plus, looks good on your program

True or False Quiz #4

True & False Quiz is such a great idea
I have actually modified it l little & made "lamented cards" each residents has with "True" or "False" to display when question is asked & I take score of each resident.
I have found in many quiz games many residents depend on others to answer questions & the cards have made totally gives them "Independents & Confidence" of decision making & keeps them more alert
Thanks for the great idea

Aussie Bingo

Thank you for the Aussie Bingo game, much appreciated
I actually modified my sheets as many of my residents would not remember "Louie the fly" they would remember the Add but not the actual "Louie" and a few other pictures also would confuse them
I wrote underneath all pictures in (black per) as large as possible of what the actual picture is, and I feel this will help them greatly

Cover the Number - Dice Game

Thanks Joanne, I actually had 23 residents playing this game on Tuesday, I did print out sheets & I taped them to cardboard, did not laminate them as I find markers are more secure on actual sheets.
I also purchased packs 10 dice for $2 & was able to give each resident their own plastic cup with 2 dice per cup & that made them feel as they were in control.
I called "roll" & I would just help them with their choice of number.
They loved the game.
I work in a Retirement Village but in that group that played this game I had cognitive, dementia & sight impaired & all coped well with assistance.
Thank you,
Kerry
