We have just been put on 'lockdown' here (UK, North East Lincolnshire) as a precaution for the Coronavirus. It hadn't actually reached us yet. But as a precaution, I've had to cancel all booked entertainment to keep the residents safe.
I, as an AC (of mainly dementia residents) I was wondering what
Activities you have in place instead?
I want to help the residents feel stimulated & kept 'busy' at this time. Looking for ideas, can you help?
Warm regards

Thank you Molly & Susan. You both have been most helpful. Particularly the articles. I will use those.
I think I may make some 'Forget-me-not bombs' too.
Here is a recipe:

2 parts potting soil
5 parts pottery clay mix from your local art store
1-2 parts water
1-2 parts  forget me not seeds
Blue dye
Large tub to mix ingredients
Box to dry and store seed balls
 mixed all the soil and clay and water together until there were no lumps, we got roughly the consistency of plasticine, and then add the seeds and kept mixing. If its a bit dry and crumbly you can add more water. Separate the mixture and roll in to small balls and then let them dry in a cardboard box for 24 hours.
In Dementia week & when
'the bombs' are dry,
 I will sell them (money will go in our residents fund) & they can be thrown anywhere you think needs wild flowers, Hedgerows down country lanes, any unmaintained areas in your town that could do with brightening up, roundabouts or quite literally anywhere! The clay will crumble & the seeds will sprout.
Lets not forget our loved ones!
 Forget-me-nots will be  springing up all over the place!
