Hi michelle.

It is really hard. Im my facility we have 45. My attendance for activities ranges from 8 to 32! It really depends on what im doing, if the activity is in the morning or the afternoon and how the residents are feeling. My most successful recently has been bingo of a morning and i held an old time record morning. Generally craft is attended by the same people. I have started inviting people in a different way. I ask them if they would like to come and have a look at we are doing and just have a chat. This seems to be working!
Good luck!

Hi. I have just started at my local nursing home and was wondering what others have found that works and what doesn't work in other centres as far as activities go. Thanks
