do you have this in different languages or just Spanish and English

I use This Day in History for my weekly World of Interest class with the seniors. I wold like to see less movie and song trivia and more historical and social trivia.
I love Golden Carers as a resource. You have so many interesting topics and ideas. My residents like the quizzes.
I am currently teaching via Zoom and it is challenging. It looks like I will not be back in person any time soon, either. Do you have any advice on how to engage a group which includes Memory Care virtually?
Thanks for all you do.

I am not sure if these people have iPads or computers
If they do you could set up a zoom conference or a Skype call
You could also have a special Facebook group for them
If this is too much set up a teleconference
I am sure you can do one for free as long as the residents are able to use the phone
I had a group and we played bingo over the phone but there are many things you can do over the phone like trivia reminiscing etc
You could send these people cards and have them make simple cards to send other people
You could send them activities in the mail or have the caregiver bring them
Make sure they are Some thing that the clients could do

Hi My name is Beatriz and I would like to said thank you for your amazing job. I do have some recommendation in your presentation about One Day in The History The People with I work, they are not able to see the yellow colors, it look very nice, but is hard to read for most of them.

Thanks for your feedback Beatriz, we will take this on board and setup a black and white version.

I think this is a brilliant idea and I am going to run it as a weekly session. Fantastic for Reminiscence and prompting discussion. I hope this is going to be a regular feature. Well done!
