We have done the work for you and developed activity packs for use in aged-residential care homes, day activity programmes or social groups of elders. These age appropriate activities are designed for elders to facilitate discussion, provide cognitive stimulation and promote physical activity while assisting them to remain connected with their environment.
The weather kit contains a rain gauge for regular monitoring of rain levels and a weather related wordfinder that can be enlarged for a group activity or copied for an individual activity. Laminated cards with photos of various cloud formations and descriptions have been designed to use as discussion triggers and/or can be used as a quiz. This activity is suitable for both men and women.
The instructions with ideas and prompts mean that the kit can be utilised by recreation staff, volunteers or family members wanting to lead a meaningful activity for the older adult.
The pack contains:
• Activity instructions, including discussion topics
• 1 x rain gauge
• 10 x A4 sized cloud cards (reusable)
• 1 x master wordfinder with answers
• 1 x A4 sized magnetic whiteboard
• 1 x dry erase black marker pen
