Sometimes it is the simplest things that get the best results. Just for fun yesterday we all wore name tags with our Leprechaun names. (generated from the attached list found on FB) The residents loved it and got a huge kick out of seeing all the silly names.

I did a St. Patrick's Day Scavenger Hunt with Google photos of famous places in Ireland. Very similar to the Mardi Gras scavenger hunt on this site. Both were huge hits with my residents! Love the idea of using old calendars...will keep that in mind for rainy day activities this spring and summer. Thank you!

Susan,
I pay the YMCA, but it's a very reasonable fee paid monthly.
I also recently hired a chair yoga instructor, she was slated to start in March of 2020, but obviously with Covid that never happened. She will now be starting in November once per week, again I pay her, but also very reasonable.

Our exercise program is very well received and most classes are usually full.

I use a trainer from our Local YMCA. He comes twice a week and does a seated exercise class that he tailors to the individuals needs. It's highly popular amongst our residents. The class is nearly always filled to capacity. We are an independent and assisted living facility. I've had 100 years olds taking this class.
