I have "pamper days" offering aromatherapy hand and foot massages. Head massage. Footspas, eyebrow shaping, "wisker plucking', nail polish and care, with mood music and lighting. For the bed bound I go to them.
Mood music and lighting is brilliant for calming meditation with dementia residents.

How to Plan a Fundraising Event

Does anyone have a donation appeal letter that I can look at?
I'm trying to raise some Tombola prizes from local businesse and can't decide on the wording. Especially after the Covid-19 inflicted business loss over the last 18 months in the UK.

Hi Emma,
We used to have regular visits to the Hospice from Pets As Therapy (PAT) dogs. They were pre-approved, trained and insured etc. Maybe something to look into or ask for advice.
I know it's a little more involved, but I think both you and the dog need to be trained in infection control, behaviour, safe guarding etc. Also a DBS and insurance will be required in the UK.
hope this helps.

I want to make an activities survey for my residents. There are primarily with us because of age, rather than illness as we are Residential not Nursing and only 18 bedded.

Do any of you have a template or can suggest a format for my survey?
I've got writers block I think!

Thank you in advance.

10 Activities to Celebrate VE Day in Lockdown

Does anyone know where I can source some old war time posters ready for VE Day? I'm looking for land army, careless talk, coughs and sneezes, that kind of thing.
