This site is an absolute God Send. I cannot thank you enough for the incredible wealth of information you provide. You have saved me hours a week and literally changed my life, I look forward to exploring all you have to offer and think this site is worth every cent, massive thank you to the founders, you can see where your heart is - everything is of an excellent standard and I love the opportunity you have provided for us all to connect and share ideas. Simply Amazing.
I really love your website. I still find it incredulous that this site exists. I know how hard it must be for our Lifestyle teams to keep coming up with ideas and activities and to now have found this site - WOW. I really do think it says a lot about the immense value of community collaboration - because this site is about that! so I am immensely proud that people, especially older people, may be benefitting from this wonderful resource all over the world.
I would also be interested in ideas! This is not so much of an activity (not sure if you already do it), we have the local childcare come to visit our residents fortnightly, with 5-6 children aged approximately 3years old. Our residents absolutely love it! They enjoy throwing a ball back and forth, watching them play and looking at things the children may have bought in (e.g. colouring). We also have a volunteer bring in her dog, the residents thoroughly enjoy this, especially our residents with dementia and verbal communication difficulties as they can use their body language and pat the dog to interact and form a connection.
I look forward to hearing more ideas!!
