Hi,
Does anyone have any thoughts or suggestions as to fostering motivation in terms of increasing interest and participation in activities.? I have observed that it is very difficult to get some participants involved in anything but bingo and television. Field trips are great, but we can't be out all day everyday. Thanks!

I have many Vietnam veterans who are very depressed and difficult to motivate.
Thanks for the suggestion, I will give it a try.

wisdom or suggestions would be most welcome.
Thanks!
