Hi everyone to my e thank you so much for your valuable input to my question. I have since been on the therapy website and we are trying the Boli ball for her and this has been given the go ahead by the manager and physio. I am hoping that this will be a good start for my resident than putting blankets, sheets etc in her mouth.
Again my thanks and look forward to chatting again soon

Hi all I have popped in to gather your knowledge! I have a dementia resident who is in a 'cloud chair', no teeth and continually chews the inside of her mouth, fingers or on clothing/bedding. I would like to think that something like a child's teething ring could help her but obviously that would be too small. Any ideas from you appreciated! She has no discomfort by chewing/gumming the side of her mouth and eats food fine.

HI I have recently started in an aged care facility all indigenous/TSI dementia and english 2nd language. Looking for ideas of traditional and stimulating activities to introduce. I like to look outside the square to introduce something that will see that twinkle in their eyes of that recognition. Dot painting is done and a bit of bush tucker to some residents.
Your input would be greatly appreciated.
