A resource has been compiled by the Health Innovation Network (HIN), the Academic Health Science Network for South London, to support the provision of activities in older adult’s mental health inpatient settings and Care Homes during the national response to Covid 19. Many of the resources included are dementia friendly.
The guide assumes that not all patients/residents will have access to their own online device (tablet, laptop, smartphone), so it includes a selection of activities that can be enjoyed by groups gathering around the same screen.
Activities on the guide include:
- Games, Colouring, Jigsaws, and other fun activities to do alone or with a carer.
- A selection of various free Newspapers and Magazines.
- Links to large collections of classic music and film collections.
- A range of Livestream content including Theatre performances, Museums tours, Zoos and safaris, and Exercise routines.
