i read On This Day every morning to our residents.
Any piece of history that I know our residents would be really interested in, I do more research on it. We have had some wonderful conversations, even trying to remember what we were doing or where we were when. a particular event happened.
thank you for all the wonderful ideas and information.

Not sure if I'm being thick here but why are there two seperate sets of On This Day? Am I missing something??
Talita 30th Aug 2021
Hi Judith, there are different biographies for each set.

Our adult day program used this resource everyday right after we discussed the current events with coffee. Now, we do Zooms two times per week and the participants can see the information on their computer screen and follow along.

Since I'm a staff of 1 with 65 residents, I can't change the "This Day in History" every day - no time!  So I print off the whole month, put it in a binder, and leave it on the table below the Activity Bulletin Board.  Someone (not me) flips over to the next day all month long, and I've observed residents holding the binder on their lap and sitting on the comfy chair by the bulletin board reading "today's" entry.

Is it going to become a regular feature? I would love to use it at 10AM teatime each day but do appreciate that it is a lot of work.
