Men's Activity Calendar

Don't forget about the men in your facility. Schedule interesting discussions, like Greatest of All Time? when discussing the best American presidents on Lincoln's birthday. In addition, provide unique special events for the men, like celebrating Man Day by hosting a western movie marathon in your Activity Room for the day.

Dementia Activity Calendar

Provide specialized activities for your residents with Alzheimer's or dementia that are fun, yet meaningful. For instance, as a bedside activity, borrow a tablet for A Trip to Wine Country with your resident on National Drink Wine Day, or host a Beignet Baking School to honor the influence of French cuisine during Mardi Gras.

For example, during "Six More Weeks of Winter" Week assist residents with Tracing Shadows as a lower-functioning activity, or during Super Bowl LI Week, host a Halftime Show in which residents get up and dance to Glenn Miller and Benny Goodman during the halftime break.
