HI everyone, I have just recently changed positions from care worker to lifestyle assistant in a residential facility in the Valley View SA area. I have been there now for bit short of 4 months and in that time our coordinator decided to resign and left us all in limbo. All computer resources were non existant. In conjuction with the facility manager we have been doing our best to keep the lifestyle activities going and try get documentation back in order. What I need help with is: 1) I would like to get access to volunteers (how and where can I go to help with this) and 2) We have been raising funds to take residents on a bus outing as it was one of the top resident survey requests. I have heard that it may be possible to access buses via local council. If this is so I would love to hear feeback from anyone who has done so on how I go about to organise this. Thanks in advance.

Balloon Games

Thank Dianne,
I'm going to give this one a go, using it as a double activity for the day.
Craft for the morning for those able and have the attention span and the balloon game for those in princess chairs and dementia.

Activity for the day sorted : )
