hi Kristy,
firstly welcome, i have been a activities co coordinator in the UK for nearly 2 years and how its changed in the last year with lock down. please dont be downhearted as we all have days sometimes weeks where we feel like packing it in cause you feel we are getting no where. i had a wobble myself last week as residents were frustrated as we are struggling to meet the needs of everyone on a daily basis and as much as it hurts to say that, its literally impossible as we have 80 residents. please deep down we all do our best, anything music related is always a winner. we use m4d dementia radio/BBC music memories among others which offer their own activity sheets. For our dementia a couple;e of our most popular activities are aqua paint, music, dice games, conversation starter games. For the residents who do not join as much we have the mechanical cats and dogs and dolls you can buy but that depends on budget. but i literally have a massive list of ideas and activities, so never feel alone and you can always ask me if you would wanna brainstorm. Guess the scent or tasting sessions go down well also. hope this brings some positiveness and things improve. never feel alone. its a hard job but rewarding and i am sure you doing a wonderful job.
