Hi All,
Thought I would add what we are going to do. We are putting together little Halloween goody bags for each person, and hanging it on their door as to help with social distancing. We are doing a Spooktober Soup Social. We will have soup and decorations, people will be able to space out or take their soup home. We are also doing a "BOO" fundraiser. We have made cute door hangers that have a Halloween theme and a "BOO" and a treat (candy). Residents and loved one's can purchase a "BOO" and management will secretly place the treat on specified residents door. All the money we collect from family and residents will help fund a Christmas celebration. Thank you all for your wonderful ideas!

Hi All,
I have been beginning to brainstorm ideas for October and Halloween. Does anyone have ideas of what they are doing with their residents?
Thanks!

Thanks Susan. This is helpful. I should definitely look into my local senior center, perhaps they have some resources for me. Thanks!

Hi All,
I just began as a Service Coordinator for a low-income living facility. It has been hard to find activities and engagement activities for my residents during COVID-19, however, have begun using some of the great ideas on this site such as the Bored Board, or Bunker Bingo. I would really love to implement monthly/weekly goody bags, physical activities like puzzles, or books, etc. (not just paper one's) but realized we have no budget (we are non-profit). I would also love to have small events or donations. Have you any of you had luck during COVID? What organizations in your community have you reached out to? What have you received/asked for? Any creative ideas? Thanks!
