Hello everyone,
I joined this group about a month ago and I am enjoying it so much. I like the choices I have with activities and reading the comments left by other LECs. One of the activities I did was the Armchair travel to Japan and it was great. I had fun planning, making passports and boarding passes and getting the videos in order. Our kitchen manager also prepared Japanese type foods and dessert for that day too. the residents had fun and the best part was, we have a resident who spent 2 years in Japan and he talked about his time there. Now the residents want to travel to Holland next, so on to planning another trip.
I like this Golden Carers site.

Good morning Susan, Solange,
We always make a "end of life" book for the residents when they pass using pictures of them through out their time with us that the family gets and can always look back, along with flowers and a card signed by staff. But I like the idea of having staff make a "wonderful thing book" . I will work on it and report back in this forum how it turned out.
Have a great day!!!!!

Hello everyone,
I hope you are all doing well and enjoying this awesome forum.
I am kindly seeking ideas on items to present to a family who has just lost a loved on other than flowers. The resident that passed was the owner of a greenhouse/nursery business.
Thanks for your help.

Hi I work at a Retirement Living facility and when a resident passes we ask family members for permission and then we place the residents picture in a beautiful picture frame, place a light next to the picture and a copy of their obituaries. We display it in the hall where everyone can see it along with a sign that says ":you are loved". It have worked well so far.
I do like the idea of the memorial service and maybe such a service can be held quarterly in Memory of.
