Answers


A.  A resident for whom Block Stacking is appropriate may be distracted by too much verbalization.
B.  Color Column Bingo, Single-Digit Bingo, and Picture Bingo.
C.  The four areas of assessment for a heavy care resident are: 1. eye openness, movement, and focus; 2. breathing depth and rate; 3. head, hand, and face gestures; and 4. vocalization- noise, sound, and word
D. An important use of Scent Therapy is as an introductory activity to bring a resident into a more alert state.  
E.  If the resident cannot keep a correct amount of tension on a yarn needle for Bead Stringing, use Scotch tape to make a stiff end to the yarn.
F.  A crucial key in implementing a Mobile with a resident is to have the resident assist in selecting the pictures used.
G.  Clay rolling is not implemented at a total physical assistance level because it is extremely difficult to totally physically assist a resident to glide his or her hand over the clay with the varying amounts of pressure required as the shape moves from a ball into
a narrower and narrower rope.
H.  A group of fairly alert residents came in to the Activity Room and asked to do Bean Scooping, because they thought it was fun,
and liked the sound of the beans.
I.  Three ways to adapt Envelope Stuffing are: 1. provide the resident with obsolete materials, rather than an active project; 2. have the papers already tri-folded for the resident; and 3. cut the papers so that they are smaller and slide into the envelope easier.
J.  You might consider an Activity Apron for a disoriented resident who likes to have something to hold in his or her hands to manipulate, but who is likely to drop an object frequently.
K.  Using a paper clip and magnets gives the resident a better chance at success, since the paper clip is drawn to the magnet.
L. You might adapt the Pillow Maze to be a passive activity in which the resident observes you pulling out each bag to find the ‘surprise’, making your conversation the quality of the activity.
