I recently attended a nursing home where the lady had a weekly print out of activities on her wall (if that's not too labour intensive)
Emailing family is a cheap way of reminding family, if they are closely engaged with their loved one.

Bingo allows them to all participate in the same activity without having to engage too much! We also play Uno for the same reason.

Hi Mardi
Some ideas depending on how far you wish to travel and where you're coming from! There are lots of good drives around the Yarra Valley. Our people loved Rayners Orchard, where they can board a tractor (easy to get on and off) for a great tour and fruit tasting. Lavender farm, Yarra Valley chocolaterie. Tarrawarra has beautiful views, as does Riverstone winery. Most of the wineries with restaurants are lovely just for coffee and cake without the alcohol! Cranbourne gardens have a "garden explorer" that you can hire out for your entire group to take you around - can't vouch for how easy it is to get on and off as it's on our "to do list" for this year. Closer in - Beasley's nursery in Warrandyte is a lovely spot to wander or just sit for coffee if walking is too difficult.

Hi Tracey, if you do Australia, you could try dot paintings - if you look these up as Australian indigenous art you should find lots of inspiration.
