Activities for older people in care homes

Activities for older people in care homes Author: Sarah Crockett

This activities book is useful and very readable as the author is writing from her own experiences as leisure staff in aged care- both residential and community care. The book is written for the UK environment but easily adapted to our own. I would recommend this book to people starting out in this profession, doing creative activities with clients in aged care. It has chapters on planning, art and craft, cooking and an extensive chapter on appropriate exercise, outings, spirituality, theme days and sensory activities. The reference section is extensive and would encourage readers to borrow other books on activities and dementia to expand their knowledge. This would be a great book for a student doing aged care studies or leisure and lifestyle studies.
