A new season brings with it the opportunity for new activities! Once again, we’ve compiled a list of great activities that can be done either in a group or on a one to one level and put them together into an activity guide which can be downloaded completely free of charge!
This edition features activities ranging from a brilliantly British ‘time for tea’, coupled perfectly with pumpkin chip cookies!
Each activity idea in this guide has been categorised to identify the type of activity and who the activity is best for to support you in finding the right activity, for the right person/group and planning activity rotas.
Our guide is suitable for anyone, from carers to loved ones, and the activities we have created can be enjoyed by everyone. We hope that you and your loved one will love trying out the activities, as much as we did creating them.
