I just love love love this site - each time I'm glued to the many and awesome ideas to engage with our seniors. I recently downloaded some of the crossword puzzles and these seniors are fabulous to work with. That is just the tip of the iceberg. In this new chapter of my life, as semi-retired, I am so enjoying my time with seniors and watching them light up; I feel I've found a new niche. It's extremely gratifying. As to the cost of membership, it came out of my pocket - I rationalised that it was only about $3/month, less than many magazines. So keep up the GREAT work!!! Thanks again Golden Carers!!!!!
I also work in a facility for Sisters only...Congregation of St. Joseph. I believe the average age here is 93 years (I have only worked here for two months now. The Activities Director position is new to the Wheeling Center). Although age and the fact that the position is new may be the reason, I am having difficulty getting a large group of Sisters to attend any activity. We have had guest speakers, crafts, outings, etc...but for the most part, I average about two Sister per event. Do you have any suggestions that may help me? Any help at all would be greatly appreciated!!!
