Description

The effects of social interaction and engagement with older people have been proven to considerably improve quality of life and emotional wellbeing. This book comes packed with ready-to-use activities for groups of older people, aimed at connecting individuals, developing their self-esteem, and encouraging personal expression and independence.

The activities are intended to be led by facilitators working with groups of older people in residential homes, drop-in or day centres, hospices, clubs for older people, hospitals, or support groups. The activities range from creative arts to storytelling to sports, and are all designed to keep both bodies and minds sharp, while encouraging positive relationships with others.

Professional recommendations include:-

Danny Walsh, Senior Lecturer, University of Lincoln, UK

‘Clear instructions and astute choice of activities will ensure that care workers have the means to make real positive enhancements to the lives of older people in their care.’

Marylyn Cropley, www.freeplay.1me.net

‘As modern technology and medicine increases life span and the potential for social isolation, Dynes’ Positive Communication, offers a timely, creative and motivational lifeline. Designed for group facilitators and older adults, it addresses important communication and well-being issues, in helpful and practical ways.’
