Lucille Ball Look-Alike Competition

I recently organized a rock and roll themed morning - Elvis Presley.
I displayed a stage with rock and roll skirts, tops and shirts, Elvis Presley T shirts, costumes and memorabilia. I invited a singer to entertain the residents with rock and roll / Elvis Presley songs/music. The morning was fun clients had a great time.

The Great Australian Dunny

I have found poetry triggers memories for some of our residents who have dementia and I am often surprised by how often some can continue to recite the whole poem without very much prompting, especially the older poems which some had learnt at school.

Thank you for sharing your ideas. As we have no volunteers back in our facility as yet, your plan is manageable by my self.

Wandering and Dementia

This information is very helpful. We have a resident who becomes very anxious and wants to go home to her family. It is very difficult to console her some afternoons as she becomes very fixated on leaving. I will try the home duties activity with her

Thank you
As I have not combined all sensory perceptions before with a person who suffers with anxiety I will try this sensory activity with her.
