I love Golden Carers! When I first became an ‘Activity Aide’ I spent hours scouring the internet looking for meaningful activities for elders experiencing cognitive decline. I finally found ‘Golden Carers’! I’ve passed along ’the find’ to the Activity Director of where I work. Thank you again for all that you do - Golden Carers is much more than a great resource for activities - it’s an education on how to provide ‘life’ to both workers and our elders.
It's really wonderful to see our clients so engaged with the puzzles and word searches, the Trivia is really popular and our participants get a buzz out of getting the answers correct. Golden Carers is our "Go To" resource on a weekly basis and it is rewarding for our working day to add it to our activity programs.
Sorry, I just saw your question re whiteboard games. I have just posted "hangman" which is a fun whiteboard game. Another oldie but a goodie is scattegories. Choose a word, for eg. MARCH, & have the clients come up with - girls & boys names starting with each letter
- M-A-R-C-H, then if still interested, can include other categories such as countries, cities, professions, food etc that start with each letter. Cheers, Sandy
