Good evening all,

Some great ideas thank you very much. Some ideas we are currently using but continue to have challenges with behaviour. Some days better than others. Looking into setting up an mens shed we do have tool box and instruments box.
Cheers all!

Alphabet Game

We play this regularly, I make a new list of questions from household items, things in your bag, toolbox, car, office, kitchen appliances... you can make it endless fun...
The residents love the challenge at happy hour. Divide tables as with trivia so others can help to make up teams. Have a volunteer, staff member or family members to help each table they love to get in on it too.

Great for a laugh and they really love the competitiveness!!!

Wandering and Dementia

Find a meaningful activity they like, hard to know what to say without knowing the person. What would have interested them prior, discussing this you may find that building a rapport with clients can initiate their contribution because they just want to join you.
