Supermarket Shopping activity-
Hi all, Im from Queensland, Australia and Im wanting to set up some type of shop with fake foods and boxes ect. They would be free to browse around an grab items for their baskets, chat between themselves and then leave via a cash register. Has anyone done anything like this? Ive seen places in the Neverlands do this, but cant find more information such as pro's and con's for this activity. Looking forward to feedback and advice :)

With the Corona Virus restrictions easing, we are now allowed to take residents on outings in Qld Australia. I have many question on this! Do we social distance on the bus? Do we only go to outdoor places? Is there a capped number if we go to an indoor venue? I cant seem to find any further info other than 'Residents are now allowed to go on outings'

Can anyone assist?

We only need the residents permission for outside display ie Social media, newspapers ect. And as for the children, the daycare is responsible for getting appropriate approval off parents.

Hi Jane,
We have had a musician/comedian come to our facility to do a show. This one in particular was a little crude, but the residents really enjoyed the show!

Hi all,
I'm looking for suggestions on adult appropriate communication Apps to download?

Any ideas?
