How to make horses for the ‘Race Horse’ game:

What are the instructions on how to play this game. Do you need dice etc. Please let me know so that I can play this game with my residents.

Creative Thinking Exercises

Hello I am the activity coordinator in a residential care unit. My Residents are all elderly ranging from 73 years to 101years and high care and are of high dementia and unable to physically & mentally participate in many quizzes & games . Many of them are unable to see which makes many of them reluctant to participate in any activities. I try to reassure them by reading to them and use of pampering sessions, lots of hugs & social chatting to them only for short periods as they seem to get very tired listening to me or unable to hear. I have provided lovely touchy feely smelling & listening activities from this site. If anyone has any ideas to pass on I would appreciate it.

Two Minute Activities for Dementia Care

In my job we are not allowed to hug client's it is against the policy of the organisation that I work in. The client has to initiate the touch or hug. This system has become very sad because many clients like a hug from their carers from time to time.
