Mixed Media Collages for the Elderly

We completed our collage and entered It in our local show. The group won 2 prizes for a total of $75. We did a bottle tree with individual canvases to symbolise the individuals within the group, The name of the group (by popular vote) is The Bottle Tree Wanderers so we thought a Bottle Tree was quite appropriate.

Thanks for the great idea

Creative Button Tree

These are fun, we made some last year with our group. We used flat backed canvases so that is was easy for our clients to glue the buttons on. Great activity for any skill level!

Party Themes for Dementia Care

I forgot to update you on our picnic last year! We had a lot of fun just chatting and having lunch together unfortunately it was a bit hot for our outdoor games I had planned so this year I'm planning another one a little earlier on in Spring.

How to Support Mentally Alert Clients in Mixed Group Environments

I really find one of the best things for our more Mentally Alert Clients can be to have them assist the others, or even get them helping out with the activity. That way they really feel that they are contributing and (For lack of a better phrase) not being "lumped in" with all the others. I have also developed some great find a words that are 'hard', 'harder' and 'hardest'.
