We have an addition to our fantastic staff. This lady has extensive work experience in nursing homes and working with seniors. In the previous home she worked at she worked in organizing and implementing the activities for the residents. She is doing a wonderful job her at Blow Me Down Retirement Centre with incorporating her knowledge into our activity program.
Because we are a small home, we can tailor the activities to our residents.
She has started an exercise program with the residents. This includes chair exercises, stretching and indoor and outdoor walks. Physical activity is an integral part of overall health and senior well being.
Some other activities on our calendar help to evoke memory recall and mental stimulation. These include memory games, reminiscing, quizzes and puzzles. Also with Christmas soon happening, we have added craft time to our activities which will involve some Christmas craft making such as ornaments.
