Here is a nice and easy activity to enjoy with your residents in aged care, like many of our activities we encourage you to set the mood with some fun upbeat music.
Use a large whiteboard for this activity and make a list from the top – A to Z
Start with A and ask the group what kind of job or occupation starts with A?
Some answers might be – Artist, Anthropologist, Accountant, Actor.
When you have exhausted all your A’s start on B, writing the answers on the board next to B – Baker, Butcher, Barrister etc. Some letters will be much harder to do than others.
You could also use this activity to name ‘Flowers’ from A to Z or ‘Peoples Names’ from A to Z.
This gets everyone thinking and interacting together and it’s a lot of fun!
