Reflections


Hi all,

Just a quick note to say this free resource discussion based game is available from Lindsay at -

https://www.artsyfartsymama.com/2016/12/printable-new-years-eve-reflection-questions.html

(Downloadable cards are available)

It would make a great CST activity session, promoting meaningful reflection and recollections of memories of events of the last year.

For people with more severe cognitive impairment, perhaps answering the questions might be more beneficial, so friends and supporters can assist with recall.

A nice idea for playing the game would be to write down the best answer from a group, so the cards reflect the group's experience of the year as a whole. Maybe then it could be put on a string for display?

Alternatively, it would make a great game to play on New Years Eve with family and friends.

Hope you enjoy. And thanks again Lindsay.

About Me

Simon O’Donovan MBE has worked in NHS Wales for most of his adult life, supporting people with dementia, their carers and families and developing and improving services to benefit this client group. 

He recently retired from working as a Community Mental Health Nurse within a Young Onset Dementia Service and continues to contribute to weekly CST 'Friendship Group' sessions as a volunteer co-facilitator.

 

He has been keeping a weekly 'Young Dementia CST Blog' to share and archive tried and tested activities resources, with the ultimate aim of providing an 'off the shelf' resource library of weekly themed CST sessions which can be used on rotation throughout the year. 

 

The main aim of this website is to share experience and resources freely, in order that others can dip in and out and use some or all of the materials provided in their own CST work. Thus it is hoped, facilitating and supporting the provision of uplifting and enjoyable sessions that optimise people with dementia's quality of life.

This site is not owned by or affiliated to any organisation. It’s a personal commitment, a not for profit exchange of ideas and a resource library which aims to enable more widespread use of CST approaches for people with dementia. 

To this end, 'Guest Blogs' are VERY welcome, but bearing in mind that no images of clients are to be used without their express written informed consent.

Please note that some images are reproduced on this blog from the internet under the 'fair use copyright' principle, in that they will only be used for educational purposes with disability groups and in no way will be linked to profit making activities.
