Hi Melissa,

golden carers has an extensive list for Anzac Day along with making poppies, ceremony speeches etc that you can adapt to suit your needs...have a look you will find something here for sure.

I am interested in putting in a sensory activity that involves blocks of scents that are heat in a warmer. The company is "Scentsy" and you can buy the warmer and scents what are non toxic, and the wax is cool to the touch.

Can any one tell me if they are able to use this type of activity at their centre? I am reluctant to call it Aromatherapy due to the qualifications needed.
How do other facilities get around this .

I look forward to peoples comments.

Cheers Debbie.

Sweetheart Tree

love this idea. I have purchased one from e bay to use. I think this would be great to share for those clients who are bed bound and use this as a theme for discussion and move it around to each person, changing the theme to their specific interests. Leave it in their rooms for a week in turn.
stimulate senses and aid one on one visits.

Hi ,

I have an idea that works at our centre. Photographic back drops are available on ebay. They are large prints that are made of plastic and I have brought them for summer (beach theme), Spring ( Flowers in blossom), Autumn ( trees losing their leaves) winter ( snow). They are very large and fill a wall approx. $30.00 each. Well worth the price as they will last a life time.

Hope that helps Debbie
