Free Music Playlists for the Elderly

Hi Jeff,

You might want to try the Spotify links again, I tested them and they are working for me. If you login to your Spotify account you should be able to start listening to them right away.

Copyrights on music changes constantly and is different for each country, so keeping the YouTube and Spotify lists updated is only something we can do periodically. The playlists were between Spotify and YouTube were close to the same, so you can see what was removed in Spotify.

Hope that helps!

Free Activity Calendar for Seniors

Hi Adele,

We've just added the new backgrounds which were updated on Toolkit, so you can start using them with these downloadable templates too :)

Hi Raquel!

The best place to start is the video on using these calendars :)

Once you've tested them out, let me know if you have any specific questions, happy to help.

Hi Connie,

If you're using the printables on Golden Carers, then once you've printed off a calendar and filled it in, you can save the file and re-print it. But it's just like any other word document or PDF file, you have to maintain it yourself.

If you use Toolkit, you can set up your activity schedule once with repeating activities, and then print future months as you need them :)

Hope that was a bit more clear!

Hi Connie!

The calendars on Golden Carers are purely templates, so you need to add activities each month separately.

We have another system called Toolkit:
https://toolkit.goldencarers.com/

This system lets you set up an activity schedule and then download the templates anytime you like. You can read more about it here:

The best part is the Activity and Calendar features are free for all existing Golden Carers members :)

Hi Teresa

Interesting idea thanks for the suggestion, I'll pass it onto our team.

Have you tried the "Repeating" activities? It's helpful if you have activities that recur on a weekly/monthly basis as they can be set up to repeat automatically. Or do you have a very flexible schedule where you might change things on a weekly basis? In that case, I can see how a drag/drop list of your more common activities could be useful.

Hi Teresa!

Lovely to hear Toolkit is working well for you :)

To clarify your request, are you asking for a way to keep track of miscellaneous activity ideas, and then be able to add them later? Or, are you wanting a way to save activities on Golden Carers, and then be able to reference those within Toolkit?

Thanks.

Hi Robin,

Just letting you know we released the Word document feature for Calendars last week :)

You can now download your calendar as a word document and add your own styles, designs, fonts, colours, text size, etc.

Let me know if you have any feedback!

Hey Robin!

We are actually in the process of adding a "Download as Word Document" option to the Monthly Calendars on Toolkit.

We're really excited as this will give every member of Golden Carers the ability to use a professional calendar management system, combined with the ability to download and edit the calendar anyway they like, adding photos, text boxes, using custom fonts, adding their own headings, etc!

The current Toolkit download is in a PDF format, which isn't very easy to edit or make changes to unless you have special software and know what you're doing. That's why you're not able to change the heading right now, but that should change soon!

Hi Sharon!

We will be updating this soon so the days are a little transparent, then you can see more of the background image :)
