How to Run Group Exercise Sessions for the Elderly

We play and do actions to the Macarena. Hand, palms, shoulders,ears, tummy, hips, wiggle wiggle, clap. They love it. Also march to "When the saints come marching in" and the chicken dance sitting down. Lots of fun.

Recycled Hoy Game

We played this this week and was a great success. I used playing cards to cover the card sheet. We also have trouble with 8 & Ace. I spell Ace and say the number 8.
Oh and made the mistake of printing in black & white first off. Haha.

Words in Words Game

Our lastest game using the whiteboard is Going around the room each resident gives me a letter of the alphabet and I write it up on the board. They then have to make a sentence using each letter. Works really well for us.
