Deal or No Deal

I use finger nail polish, toothpaste, notepads, ink pens, tissue paper(like the small pack), chapstick, chips, cookies, nothing big....for the booby prizes it might be a washcloth, a bar of soap, comb, just something that our residents will find silly.

Guess Who?

We used this during National Assisted Living Week and we had so much fun with it. Thanks for sharing.

Prize Walk

I use small prizes, yet items that the residents either need or small snack items. Many of them do not have extra money to buy the little things, so that is a way for them to have fun and pick up some things they other wise might not get.
chapstick
lip gloss
toothbrush
toothpaste
cookies
nail polish
combs
costume jewelry
wash cloth
gum
these are just some of the examples that I have used.

Taste Test Savoury Nibbles

We call ours just "taste test contest" we use different foods from jello to peanut butter to candybars. Our residents also loved this.

How to motivate residents in long term care

I am a new Activities Director at an Assisted Living and my residents are high level functioning and it is like pulling teeth to get them to come to an activity. Any ideas would be appreciated please?
