How can residents help? We have a resident who is always talking about the movie The Gods must be crazy

I work in an aged care centre with 6 residents. Lack of motivation is a problem. I find the thing that works best is person centred activites, eg one resident loves playing Rummy King, but hates craft etc. Just talking to them all the time finding out what their life has been like and what their interests have been. Getting them to do gentle exercises,even in bed seems to help a bit, gets the blood flowing!!! I will read articles that appeal to them when they are in bed, just lying there looking at the ceiling. It can be very challenging, I'm always after new ideas and suggestions. Good luck Elizabeth
