Inspired by a resident with dementia who one night took the
phone to pieces just to have something to do with his
hands! He and others needed something to do, so this book
of games and activities was written.
Activities Matter contains sections on:
- Board games and table-top games
- Theme days and evenings - great for involving family
members and the community
- Craft ideas
Highlights the important of the involvement of the activity
organiser and friends and relatives.
"This will help staff get to
know their clients, which will then better the
clients' care... the games will give them something
they do together and will open communication
between staff and clients."
Sam Karslake, NVQ trainer and assessor
