ACtive living grey-bruce schedule

Week of Oct 5th - 11th

The following schedule is just a guideline. There's no right or wrong way to do this. If you don't like something - skip it! If you loved it, do it again.
Try adding in a social element - schedule a phone call with friends and do the same activity together or talk about it after you've done it.

Take a picture of your photo challenges, drawing ideas, or any of the other activities on this list! We want to see what you're up to! [email protected]

- BBC Reminiscence Archive- A number of reminiscence systems have been developed for people with dementia, based on photographs, photo books, boxes of objects and materials and interactive computer applications. The BBC wants to contribute to this growing set of supports for people with dementia and their carers by drawing on the enormous fund of photos, videos, and sound clips in its archives. To begin, simply select a Theme (such as Sport, Events etc.) or a Decade (1930s, 1940s etc.) and choose whether you wish to have Image, Audio or Video content. The results are randomised each visit, however items can be ‘favourited’ to return to later
