Hello Heather, I found reading and acting the classics, such as Charles Dickens "Great Expectations" drew a great response from many of my High Needs residents. To see them come close with eyes wide open and intent on what was being read them, was just a joy. I would use a different voice for each character. Many had read the classics when young so were able to relate to the story. Hope that helps.

Royal Quiz

Hi Solange and Karen. Was George V father to George VI, who in turn was the queens father? Oh dear, isn't history wonderful, or is it memory games? Loved the movie The Kings Speech - with those wonderful Australian actors.

I Went to Market Game

We did this on an ice cream afternoon, sitting in the garden under a long archway of blooming vines - just wonderful. It is definitely for a small group however, everyone tried hard to remember, lots of giggles.

Fun Riddle 5

Wow - I immediately went to my area of activity i.e. music "he's got the whole world in his hands" then read the wonderful pointers...I was way off - will definitely try this on our residents on Friday.

How to Plan and Implement an Exercise Program

Hi there, does the Carers website sell CD's / DVD's e.g. "heads/shoulders/knees and toes" and others. The residents of the dementia unit I find myself "filling-in" on a regular basis, enjoy it when we have exercises, the above would an add-on to my active games programs. Thank you

One-on-One Visits

Thank you for this form, as I usually "fill in" this will be great for my own records to enable me to work out future discussions/activities with the residents. Tangi
