please can I have some feedback on how to use this with the residents? are people going to read it to them each day? or give people a copy of each page? much appreciated!!
Donna 2nd Jan 2018 Activity Director
I saw a few comments about HOW to use this daily trivia. Any suggestions? thanks!
Kylie 2nd Jan 2018 leisure and lifestyle officer
I am going to read out a few days at a time, and have researched about one or two things of interest to the clients to talk about
Solange 2nd Jan 2018 Diversional Therapist
Hi Donna, trivia information is a good mental exercise; it entertains and informs the listeners. Knowing weird, fantastic and obscure facts is good for mental health. Use ‘This Day in History’ anytime, it is an opportunity to learn about a variety of subjects and stimulate memory to other facts relating to the subject. Use it at the beginning of an activity while waiting for clients to arrive, use it at the end of an activity while tidying up, use it at tea time to amuse clients and visitors. Turn the TDH into a reminiscing session, e.g. what else happened in the year? What usually happens that is interesting in February? If mentioning someone famous ask which films did they feature? Who they were married to, and so on. “This Day in History’ is also a good pastime for loners who rarely leave they bedrooms. Make a booklet and give it to them.
Beth 2nd Jan 2024 Life Enrichment Coordinator
I read this every morning before we start our exercises. End the reading with "A Bad Joke". If the one provided is not appropriate for my memory care folks I find a bad dad joke for kids online. I feel like it helps break the ice for the group activity.
Lesley 27th Dec 2017 Activities And Wellbeing Champion

This is such a great resource and one that I know my clients will enjoy. It covers so many areas of ability, being able to just reminisce or to use their skills with maths or jumbled words.
Love this and look forward to them monthly.
You are all so awesome and I appreciate all your hard work.

Tricia 6th Dec 2017 Occupational Therapy Assistant
You know - I think I would love to see this EVERY month .... if you are willing to do the Research!! I know that is alot of work. But, it brings back memories for the elderly of important people they will have heard of, and the associated memories of that person, whether it is a movie, an event in their life, or simply familiarity.
It is also a great distraction when people need one ..... and good to have on hand. Thanks in advance...
Talita 7th Dec 2017
There will be one released for each month of the year! Thanks so much for your feedback Tricia.
