Hi! Karin, We have 90 residents in three units, High care, Low care and a Dementia unit.
we have one staff each day per unit, the team leader has three days off the floor each week to take care of planning, calendars and care plans, so three days of the week there are four staff in total for life style.

Winter Craft – Snow Flakes

loved this craft idea, some of the residents could not do the fine cutting, but all enjoyed the end result, looks quite effective on black paper

with our dementia care unit, we offer lunch outings for some to local sports clubs, afternoon tea outings when the weather is good to local parks and take a picnic afternoon tea / or by the sea at a park with a picnic afternoon tea, also scenic drives and on the way home we always stop and buy a MacDonald's ice cream and this always goes down a treat.
