What suitable activities might be suggested for someone in a Nursing home who is still physically active? The Nursing Home where my Dad has just been admitted has only just had a new activities co ordinator and I have no idea what my Dad would be interested in doing. Over the last few years he has gradually lost interest in most of his usual topics of interest except walking. He cannot ask or answer questions, nor can he hold a simple conversation. He can talk but it does not make any true sense--he seems aware that people are talking to him, so he 'talks' back and is happy to do so. He is on the second floor of the Nursing Home which is the EMI area with good staffing levels including RMH Nurses and care staff and has only been there for a week, but he doesn't seem to actually DO anything except wander around or sit (I know its early days yet) So they asked what sort of activities he might like.........But I just don't know!!
