My current favorite 1:1 activity is pet time with our facility's rabbit. When I worked in AL, we simply gathered everyone into a circle in the activity room and passed the rabbit around to each resident while conversing about childhood pets and animals and so on. Now that I work in memory care, however, I find it more difficult to keep a group of people seated for that long. Instead I bring the rabbit from room to room and each resident gets to pet her for as long as they want, which usually adds up to about an hour unless the rabbit becomes antsy, in which case I end the activity early. There are a couple residents who really dislike leaving their rooms and whose sole interest is the rabbit, and they really love this activity.

The ideas in this thread are really fantastic. I have written down the housekeeping music boxes and the sweet dreams cart, and I hope to implement those next week.

Make a simple themed art project reflecting the holiday or season to decorate their room. For valentines days they cut out a heart and they choose how to decorate it using stickers, markers, feathers etc.

For independent room activities, based on needs and interest we provide books, magazines, puzzles, word search, crosswords, scent stories, music, movies, sound machines, craft projects like water color or drawing sheets.
