'National Bow Tie Day' - 28th August



INTRODUCTIONS


After introductions, ask members of your CST group:


- 'Who likes wearing a bow tie?'

- 'Who prefers a regular tie, or no tie at all?'

- 'Who would prefer to wear jeans and a t-shirt, versus 'black tie'?


- 'For those who do wear a bow tie, whether regularly or occasionally, is it a proper one or a clip-on?'

- 'What occasions might you wear 'black tie' at?'

- Has anyone still got a tuxedo or a 'posh frock' for a special occasion?


- 'Can anyone think of any other items of neck wear, thinking of ladies as well as gents?'


- 'Who can remember how to tie a bow tie, or a regular tie for that matter?'

Have one on stand by if possible, for members to test their skills with. (There's an instructive video at the end of the page which may help.)

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.
