This book has been written for the recreation professional and anyone else who works with older adults in the field of recreation. It provides low-cost, client-intensive recreation programming ideas for older adults, regardless of the level at which they are able to function. Anyone working with people with disabilities may utilize these ideas, but they have been designed and tested for use with older adults. A majority of the activities in this book are designed for use with clients who must have individual attention from a staff member in order to participate. The activities are designed for older adults who may or may not be physically frail, but who exhibit many signs of confusion, memory loss and/or disorientation. The authors' philosophy, evident throughout the book, is that any recreational activity can and should benefit the client, and even those programs that are designed simply to provide a fun-filled afternoon or evening should have a goal and carry equal weight in the overall programming schedule.Reindeer Food Materials: Small plastic self-sealing bags Rolled oats Glitter Directions: Make aquot;reindeer foodaquot; for children to sprinkle outside around the holidays. ...
