Posted in 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'.

Posted in Chinese New Year Client Names

Thanks for the Idea, we are going to our local Chinese restaurant for Lunch tomorrow so this is perfect. I'm going to add which Chinese Zodiac animal they are also. --Danielle

Posted in Sensory Pouches for Dementia Care

Try the Op shops. I found a whole bowl of religious pendants in our local St Vinnie's a month or so ago.

WE have just made up some little bauble trees using a large roll of ribbon with a knitting needle sticking out the top and different sized baubles threaded onto the needles.
I also made little "Thank you for a great year" notes and rolled them into scrolls and wrapped a white pipe cleaner around each, I then added pipe cleaners bent into the shapes of mistletoe, reindeer antlers and stars. I used red pom poms for the reindeers' noses and the mistletoe berries. I will place these on the plates for each client

I hope all that made sense, I don't have any pictures to show you at the moment

Posted in Christmas Pantomime: Sleeping Beauty

My Goodness. I opened this up to have a look and just realised that I actually did this one at my last job for entertainment at our Christmas luncheon. It was hilarious! Thank You so much for this one! Our fairies were all big burly men dressed in tutus and tiaras and I got to be sleeping beauty.

Keep up the great work!
