San Carlos Elms Memory Care Program, Fusing two Activities

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.
Becky's completed work of art.
 
Mary is enjoying her music while watching the Residents paint.

Emilio was all smiles while painting and listening to his music.

Joan loves it when she has time to listen to her own music.
Faye was happy to show off her monkey she painted during this fused activity.

San Carlos Elms Wii Tournament

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.

Activity Director, Kathleen loves to coach the Residents and is amazed by her average of 165.
