Hi we have been building intergenerational relationships for some time now and we have done everything from bean bag target games, coconut shy, tin can alley to arts and crafts projects. It’s such a wonderful feeling when you see the relationships blossoming from these activities. Depending on needs it’s either the senior helping the child or vice versa. Enjoy your time and good luck

Finish the Sayings and Proverbs Game

I use these quiz/ sayings to fill in time at the end of organised events. My residents love these so much and I said to them that we had got to page 9 and who was going to remind me next week? One lady looked at me and said “does it really matter dear? We would have forgotten them by next week so you can start at the beginning again”

I agree with Michelle. It’s often down to encouraging staff and showing them how to do things but in a way that they feel they are not being patronised. However, I know without good staff-we don’t have a facility,but it’s not all about the staff, the well-being of the residents is key and should be the main focus. If staff experience how rewarding it is it will empower them to do more. Upskilling staff should be at the forefront but if it’s more like a social catch up after you try additional options then maybe time for some new staff!! Good luck
