During these cold winter months it is easy to get frustrated by the falling flakes, but our INNOVATIVE team has found many ways for our residents to continue to have fun!
Residents have been enticed to venture outside to catch the melting flakes on their tongue and decorate a snowman or two. Indoors residents have had indoor “snowball” fights using snow, cotton balls, crumpled computer paper or newspaper or large marshmallows.
In addition, we have been finding INNOVATIVE ways to craftily create our own snowflakes too. This picture shows the beauty created by our residents with just a few paper towel rolls, paint, hot glue and some glitter. You can find this and other INNOVATIVE ways to engage those with memory loss in fun on our Azura Pinterest page – https://www.pinterest.com/AzuraMemoryCare/.
