Funny Poems by Roald Dahl

I really look forward to reading all the ideas regularly and am particularly fond of poems and jokes and quizzes. The staff where I Volunteer also enjoy joining in and are quite often amazed at how receptive and knowledgeable many of the elderly Residents are considering their Dementia diagnosis so keeping them busy and involved in thinking is the best medicine. I personally so wish more people would Volunteer in Care Homes as it is so rewarding.

True Or False Quiz #9

Excellent ideas for my volunteering at Care Home.
I can adapt or change to suit the capabilities of specific Residents. It certainly also keeps my general knowledge up to date and I am always amazed at how interested and knowledgeable the elderly Residents is also a good learning exercise for many of the younger Carers.
Keep up the good work..
