Are you in the UK? I'm in the USA and the law says that those providing Activities have to take a class to become Certified. There are a lot of books that can be purchased that have guidelines, ideas, policies/procedures. I don't have any links that I can give you but you might try creativeforecasting.com and also medpass.com The second has many mannuals for all departments even though it's called Medpass.

Lavender is a recommended color for Alzheimer's/dementia because its said to be calming. A seafoam green also is recommended. Stay away from Reds, Oranges, bright and very dark. These colors are said to cause agitation. I will attempt to find and post a link I used when redecorating our bath houses, that we converted to a Spa for our ladies and a nautical theme for our men.

Sensory Rain Sticks

I love rain sticks! I have many at home that I purchased for my granddaughter when she was born. They have such a soothing sound. We have 3 levels of care and I am going to have my Independent and assisted residents make these for our low functioning residents. Will incorporate into our 1:1's
