Guess the Celebrity Ages

I played this yesterday and it was a mixed response, i did replace some of the people as im in the UK and we didnt know who regis kelly was, but other than that it was a good game. I did it in a one to one setting as well, as some residents dont like joining in the group game and this worked very well.

The writer Gervaise Phinn writes full books but they are broken down into sections, hes really funny and my residents love taking it in turns or letting me read the book aloud. If you have any retired teachers they will love him, as he was one and has a lot of funny observations on children and wokring in schools.

Ill give it a go, dancing and music is on thing im trying to really use, iv read that turning the TV off and putting music on can help when trying to get their attention.

Hello, Im having trouble with motivating residents, homes are quite hot and when its hot outside also it seems to send them all to sleep and its very hard to get them motivated without them having challenging behviour. i do a variety of things for resident lots of trips and entertainers in, as well as crafting, word games to get the mind going and playing ball games and parachute. but approaching them to get them to join in is hard for me, im not loud person anyway and i dont want to dissapoint staff so any ideas that would help would be amazing.

thank you

I have just done this theme, i printed out loads of famouse actros and actresses weddings from their era as well as the royal family as we are in england and they love them. i mixed their own pictures in there as well so all the hallways and living rooms had something to look at. also i managed to get a few dresses and hung them about for people to look at, reaching out to the families was great help to me as they gave me loads of things, even let us try the dresses on if we wanted which was of great amusment to the residents and staff
