10 Sensory Activities for Men

Wow! These are great suggestions, our dementia specific wing is predominantly male and not all are at the same level of cognitive decline. Thank you for these small group activities.

Reminiscing: How to Create a Memory Board

This is a great program to do leading into July 1st new standards, person centred care is what it's all about, I love the idea of other staff being involved gleaning the information to get to know their residents

Valentine's Day Hearts

These are lovely, I'm thinking a photo copy of a recent photo of a loved one could be glued on the cut out heart too! I've done similar thing with large heart shaped paper doilies purchased from $2 shop, very cheap and effective activity, then staple onto curling ribbon/ ribbon to make bunting

Our program similar to this is called a Community circle, it goes from 15-30 minutes depending on the success and size of group, mixed stages of cognitive decline sit together in a circle and they pick a topic from flash cards, before you know it they're communicating and reminiscing, I just sit back in wonder, and smile and listen to their wonderful life stories

Bucket of Bean Bags Game

I'm loving this idea, can any one give me an idea how big the bean bag should be for ease of throwing and handling I'm thinking about 6x6 inches filled with rice maybe!

Cue Cards for Dementia Care

Only today my boss asked me to source and make cue cards for a Russian resident who has recently come to the high care facility where I work, she is in advanced stage of dementia and already reverted back to her native language of Russian, within days another resident joins us and she's German! This sight is amazing! Hopefully these residents' lives will be enriched and their ability to communicate to me their needs, easier! Thank you so much
