This set of 100+ Activity Ideas (sorted in to 10 themes) is a great new downloadable resource for care teams and recreation staff alike.
It’s not always easy to think of different things to do to bring fun and stimulation to the day. For each theme, there are lots of simple and practical ideas to get people moving, talking and thinking. There are also extra ideas for people in the later experiences of dementia as well as additional activities for those who might welcome more of a challenge.
You can choose a theme and the Activity Ideas sheets will guide you on what you need for the activities, how to be prepared and considerations in relation to infection control and individual needs. As you would expect from Meaningful Care Matters, the focus is also on developing conversations which go beyond talking about the weather and tasks in the day. These ideas will help to share memories, feelings and experiences which make us who we are.
The themes covered are:
- Childhood and School Days
- Travel and Holidays
- Special People, Places and Events
- Gardening and Nature
- Food for Fun
- Animals and Pets
- Spirituality and Mindfulness
- Fashion and Nights Out
This is a ‘must have’ great value product for every day service, care home and hospital supporting older people to live well. Choose a theme, pick your activity and let the good times roll!
