San Carlos Elms Memory Care Program, Fusing two Activities

Friday, January 20, 2017
At San Carlos Elms we have enjoyed seeing the Resident enjoy their individualized music through the Music and Memory Program.
We thought we would try to combine the Music in Memory with Memories in the Making Program to see what new art work would come from our Residents.
We were pleasantly surprise with Becky.
Usually Becky paints birds, today while listening to her music she painted a beautiful picture of flowers.

Here is a sample of Becky creating.

We started a bowling tournament Residents vs. Activity Department.
So far the Activity Department is 2-0, but last night the Residents came close.
We look forward to doing this monthly and practicing weekly to prepare.
We compete more with our own personal best scores than each other.We have more fun cheering one another on.
Bill just started bowling last week and last night he bowled a high of 145.

Joan has learned to control her hook through and is happy with her 130 average.
 
Activity Assistant, Ashley has so much fun with the Residents during this activity.
