Activity Library created for 'Two's Company' calls
In October, Lisa Stirk Community Co-Ordinator was very kindly invited to an amazing event which is run by Dementia Connections at the Pine Marten, Harrogate, on the first Tuesday of every month at 7.30pm. At this particular meeting there was a guest speaker who offers companionship and does one to one activity calls with people living with Dementia in Wakefield, West Yorkshire.
I was totally inspired by the amazing work Jill does and the range of activities she offers her clients, along with fantastic resources she uses to purchase the tools, such as Active Minds and Wimslow Resources.
I returned to the office and set about creating our very own Home Instead Activity Library as a resource for all of our CAREGiver's, this was rolled out earlier this week at our CAREGiver's monthly Team Meeting.
All of the activities that we have can be used for all of our client's, but we also have specific resources that are ideal to enjoy with clients that are living with Dementia. Please call us on 01423 774490 to find out more about our companionship and Two's Company calls.
