I had the pleasure to work with two lovely ladies, two CNAs and a volunteer. It was so rewarding when the one who'd had a stroke and kept apologizing for being so shaky and struggling with her left hand, switch to her right hand and tangle! It was very positive for her and rewarding for the activity director to see her accomplishment. I can't wait to go back.
A couple of lessons learned....
1. Greater than 65? Only an hour and a half. As much as they love it, it's tiring for them.
2. Use an 05 pen in the kit
3. Give them a scratch sheet of paper to 'practice' on. (Especially first time)
4. A string with not more than 4 sections. They want to finish each section (no matter how simple the pattern is) but it can go very slow.
They loved Ricks music!
