Group Activities With Older Adults

A highly valuable resource for an Activity Coordinator. Covering cognitive, creative, cultural, educational, emotional, physical, social, spiritual and more.

If you are an Activity Coordinator and have responsibility for providing activities for older adults in a care home, day centre or hospital and you aren't sure whether what you are providing is effective, or you have exhausted all your own activity ideas, then this is the book for you.

Group Activities for Older People is a clear and easy-to-use resource, which provides the tools you require to develop and implement a range of reminiscence activities that meet the needs of the elderly.

Ideas are structured around eleven areas of activity need: cognitive, creative, cultural, educational , employment, emotional, physical, self-esteem, sensory, social and spiritual.

There are hints, tips and suggestions for successful planning and delivery. It also provides guidance on recording and evaluating activity programmes.

In addition, the book explores some of the adaptations required to meet the needs of younger clients, those with a dementia and those with communication difficulties.

Size: (h) 43cm x (w) 23cm. 137 spiralbound pages in a softback format.
