  4. At my facility we provide three different socials for our residents each month, the first is happy hour which all of our residents participate in, the next one is our woman's social for the lady's only, and our men's breakfast club for the gentlemen.

  5. That sounds like a fun activity spankylee99! I love that the surrounding neighborhood is a part of it too! I hope that you will be able to do it this year. We had a Mardi Gras Pet Parade down the halls of the assisted living community where I volunteer. An animal rescue group conducted the parade. The dogs were dressed in cute Mardi Gras outfits. The residents wore colorful beads, feather boas and Mardi Gras masques. After the dogs strutted their stuff, the residents had a little party and ate King Cake. This happened about two weeks before the facility had to stop allowing visitors in due to

  8. I think your Men's Breakfast club is really unique! I love it! I am a Memory Care Specialist and I love the idea of coming up with activities for the guys its quite a challenge sometimes. I would love to create a Memory Care Guys club for the men in my Memory Care. I think its a challenge that hasn't quit have been meet yet. I think things like this and little jobs or tasks they had would be great for them. I haven't tried it yet but i would like to create busy boards with a wrench and nuts and bolts, and a game where they can hammer the "nails" using a rubber mallet and golf tees.

  9. Fabric Glue.. is amazing.. back in the day, the craft shows were dominated by redesigned sweatshirts, flipped-over blue jean vest and flip-flops with every imaginable trinket glued to it. Fabric Glue would take the beating of washing and wearing.. Aleenes Fabric Glue , I used Gorilla Glue on several things and I think it would work good also.

  10. I saw a great post on Facebook (Activity Directors Desk). They had their residents hold up a white board with messages to family and friends. Some of the messages were: "I'm doing well; call me sometime; Love, Mom." " I miss you; I love you, Mom. " "I hope to see you soon! Love, Grandma."

  11. Thanks for the link! We do not have the ability to stream on the TV or have a channel, nor do we have any smart devices, tablets to do activities! I am worried the state will ask about what we are doing regarding technology.... we are of course calling family members with their own phone but not skype, etc.
