It is often easiest to plan activities that revolve around holidays from October through December. It can be a lot of fun, and obviously provides easy themes. However, not everything has to be holiday focused. When people get busy, often times a home-cooked meal is the last thing they have time to make. So if you want to help your residents in the busyness of the season, I suggest trying a meal event.
Feed them AND have some fun! I am becoming well known for this saying, “If you feed them, they will come. If you feed them well, they’ll come again. If you feed them well and introduce them to a friend, they will keep coming.” Remember: The end goal is to get your residents interacting.
