Northerner Entertaining dementia patients (58* d) RE: Entertaining dementia patients 02 Feb 12

Thank you all for your comments. I've found them most helpful. I'm going to add some monologues next to what I offer. I don't need many so that's quite simple to do. My late sister and I used to recite monologues to each other. Then I will work on the songs. I would prefer to do my own singing where possible, though I might use some sound effect recordings. This was my first nursing home gig, so I want to improve so that I can do more. I got some lovely feedback so I will definitely try to get bookings in other homes. Here is what the nurse said:

"Diane provided our dementia residents with a calming, nostalgic and stimulating afternoon, that was enjoyed by all. She picked fresh rosemary, lavender and sage from her garden, and even provided old sweets, including liqourish twigs that really made for an intresting topic and helped stimulate memories for our residents. She told us of folk tales, and read us her poetry. It was a lovely afternoon."

I feel very emotional about such lovely comments.
