Once again Golden Carers has come to the rescue. I live in a retirement village and calling on my years as a Diversional Therapist I constantly use the Golden Carers for new ideas to run my group in the village. I especially love the Read Aloud Audience Participation activity and I always pick a very shy resident to take a part. It is amazing how much it brings them out of their shell. The quiz always helps keeps their minds active and gives them such a feeling of self worth when they get a correct answer.

Thank you for all the ideas.

Twice a month I run an activity session in our Retirement Village. I am just so glad that I used Golden Carers whilst working as a Diversional Therapist. You have so many amazing ideas to work with.

Thank you so much for being there for us.

I am a retired Diversional Therapist but do we really retire uh uh. I now live in a retirement village and run a group for people who have lost their partners and have a tendency to stay away from activities as the majority of the village residents are couples. I saw a need to get these people out of their houses and it has been so much fun. Golden Carers is such a wonderful resource and one of the best is the Audience participation stories especially when I select a relatively shy person to be one of the characters. It is so much fun and brings out such confidence. I highly recommend this activity.
