10 Easy-to-Grow Indoor Plants for the Elderly

Thank you for the article 10 Easy to Grow indoor plants. In the light of the COVID-19 virus, a plant or plant kit, consisting of a small pot of soil and a young plant, could be made up and dropped of with people who are at risk of isolation giving them something to plant and look after.

SPRING PROJECT I have folded some coloured paper, used a template of a large 'daisy' type flower to draw on them and will ask residents to choose one to cut out. The next step will be to put their name in the centre of each one on the outside, ask them to write the names of all the 'things' that they love inside eg family tea sunshine. (they open like cards) We will then mount them along a wall to look like a garden in full bloom. I am hoping that it will give them an opportunity to focus on the positives in their lives and It is an opportunity for the residents to give something back to family and friends that visit if they have included their names on the on the inside and the visitors see it.

It really sounds like a great day was had by all, well done, it must of taken a lot of preparation. I think that I will 'steal' one or two of your ideas. Thanks.

Let's Fly a Kite Social

Lets Go Fly a Kite, I have kites stapled to the wall and ceiling in a room where my resident is permanently in bed. I put extra long tails on the kites with different colour and textured fabric. The tails draped along the wall are a real splash of colour.

Like so many other members I really enjoy this site. We have just enjoyed Armchair Travel to Italy and served Panatone at afternoon tea.
I have been lucky enough to be given an enthusiastic colleague, to train, to assist with activities and used a lot of the articles and information from this site to widen his knowledge.
Many thanks for the top quality resource.

33% of my residents are men with varied ability. We have a pub on site that opens once or twice a week in the evenings. We serve non alcholic beer, cold drinks and snacks. We also have a craft session and the men have put together DIY birds nesting boxes, assembled models etc. They enjoy a game of dominoes also. In summer we will use the garden to sit and read etc Hope that info helps. Jean
