Activites Residnets Love

Recommended Posts

My residents love Past Times discussion Cards

We really get into some great discussions andeveryone can get involved

I purchase them from NASCO, and they are a hit

Everyone comes down to recreation to participate

 

This program is great because you can particpate no matter, age, visual abilties, physical abilites or cognitive

Everyone can answer at least 1 question

 

It also helps the residents getting to know each other

We have so much fun

Check them out

The Cards are great!!!!!!

:-) for a current events program I have "Strange But True News". I get this off of the internet from a site called the Buzz. It is current but wierd news from all over the world from the past week to the present. I print them off and read them.....with lots of discussions! I also serve cappuccinos at this time.....Loads of fun!

 

I also do a "short story" book review once a week. I read from a book called Home Town Tales which are small, true stories and the residents enjoy the discussions which stems from the reading. Lots of my resident have very poor eyesight and they enjoy being read to......even the one who have good eye sight like it!

The residents here love BINGO, of course....and Happy Hour (well any socials). AL likes The Price is Right, Wheel of Fortune (Hang Man), and Name That Tune. I wish I could get them interested in Uno and Skpi Bo (I love those, myself). Memory Care likes sing a long, Kareoke, and reminiscing / discussions. Most just like for you to spend time with them no matter what you are doing.
