Say 'Hello' in different languages

we also included some of the traditions people use when saying hello- rubbing noses, bowing, handshakes from different cultures and even for fun discussed how we say hello to our animals- or they say hello to us- dog wagging tail, cat rubbing against leg, animals lined up at the door, etc- as some clients have or have had special animals in their lives.
Also special greetings that mean a lot- grand kids saying hello etc.
Group also stood and introduced themselves one at a time and everyone in room yelled out hello!
for people with memory loss, sat in a circle and shook hands with the person next to them and waved to the person across from them as well as some discussion time.
