Printable Activities for Elderly People

Today I discovered Twinkl's printable activities for elderly people; they have a whole host of resources listed under 'dementia support' amongst their adult education printables, but obviously, we were intrigued by their creative ones - and what a find!

You can sign up for a free account or upgrade to a paid one, then download the printables you need - as well as art and craft ideas there are resources for reminiscence, intergenerational activities and even support, wellbeing and planning information for Activity Coordinators.
