Rhyming Riddles 1 Recreational Activities Officers Wow my printer & laminator are working overtime. I love everything about Golden Carers. I am in the process of putting together quiz books etc for our SCU. I printed a few off and one of our nurses wants more. She said she has a large group
Puppetry for the Elderly OTA I agree with you Robyn as I use puppets myself when I do evening reading or even during poetry reading, the residents love them as I have a large number of them the residents often nurse the puppets while I read, they have even named most of them Robyn what a wonderful activity, thanks so much for sharing!
Tissue Paper Sun Catchers - Easter Bunny activity co ordinator Made suncatchers with laminate sheets and tissue and template. No glue. Very successful. They loved watching the picture emerging from the laminate. Lifestyle coordinator Have tried to download bunny and it states there is a problem - or is it just me thanks. Clinical Nurse Consultant i have tried this and it looks great - we have used stars and flowers instead of the bunny.
If not you can use any of these ideas to make up a story https://www.goldencarers.com/search/#stq=Melbourne+cup&stp=1 Registered Nurse Hey Julie Do you have a copy of the story? I can't seem to find one! I think it would be great activity to do at my hostel! Thanks Activity Director Sounds great you could
Cress Heads Activity Director Thank you Sue and Rachel great ideas worth trying Nurse Cant wait to try this with our residents. We recently had a go at growing avocado stones that I had seen on Gardening Australia, and much to our residents joy we had success with six out of ten of the stones. Gardening Australia's web site gave me all the details on how to do this, and It certainly is worth trying. Activities Therapist Going to try this out!
were vibrant and colourful! Everyone enjoyed it - not only residents. Relatives and nurses also created their own masks. It was great fun to everyone! Thanks for sharing this lovely idea. :) Talita Thanks so much for your feedback Sylvia!
