There are those who consider the 50’s and the 60’s as “their decades”. Today we are seeing more and more of these folks in our retirement homes or nursing homes giving a lively spirit to our groups. These men and women have experiences quite different from earlier generations and we wish to address these in this volume along with experiences of earlier ages. For this reason we have included the 1950’s Year by Year and the 1960’s Year by Year. Other units will be of interest to all generations.
Frequently we search for information such as: What gift is appropriate for a 25th anniversary, or What is my birthstone? Not to worry–these lists are included here for your convenience along with many other lists we all search for.
A wide variety of units relate to the many experiences and memories your residents have stored away in their minds. These units can help retrieve such memories and bring joy and smiles to your dear residents.
These units can be used as an educational tool or combined with a program that includes appropriate music, dance, foods and decorations. Always keep the sessions upbeat. Let your residents have a feeling of success and achievement.
