bah hum bug or not there is nothing as wonderful as person to person contact socialising as other residents can lead in showing others how to do things EG knitting , crochet , painting , simple craft ideas and the list go's on.

hi

yes they are and this is your way of measuring how you residents are doing and what they are attending , important info for care planning reviews and your 3 monthly evaluations i suggest get a copy of the standards and see what is required under standard 3 that helps a lot .
good luck and remember everything you do big or small makes a difference in someones life each day .

hi
please remember that people with Dementia are adults with a deficit
it the first instant we must respect them as such activities should meet there needs and boost there self confidence and self esteem this in turn provides quality of life and a feeling of wellness in the person .
There is a fine line we must not cross even when they seem child like .
i hope this gives some help when you decide on your program all the best

hi Tracey
low care residents could be folding or helping in some way or maybe some craft and your high care is getting them in a group for a sing along that is quiet and not to energized also some nice relaxation DVD that has scenery and relaxation music check out you tube to get some ideas also aromatherapy massages , foot spas, the idea is to get them to settle and relax so when they go to bed they will be less restless.
hope this helps good luck.
