Before I worked in the library I worked at a Health Center, we found success in connecting residents with a variety children's books as a way not only of engaging the residents but connecting them to their community and families/grandkids by hosting a story time reading program over zoom for local kids. We did it individually at first and then connected with a local school.

Our residents also really loved reading newspapers and magazines together.
Lauren Gledhill
01:12:18
what's a good font size to use? is 16-18 still too small?
Kelli Jean Cunningham

Mad libs was also massively successful. Reading adjacent, but good for vocabulary retention and lots of laughter.

When we used YouTube for our sing-a-longs we slowed it down by selecting a 0.75 or 0.5 playback speed. Having the words blown up on screen was helpful but we also gave out binders.
Janet Nunziata
01:16:15
At a memory café I facilitated, we wrote a poem together!
Debbie Siegel
01:16:26
Have you used Tales and Travel as an in person program for patrons who live in the community?
Fran De Nardo

I have learned when you use music with older adults to remember some in nursing homes and in home care settings were children in the 1950's and 1960's and they miss but still enjoy classic rock and traditional old style country music. (Besides being a librarian I am also a musician and have played at nursing homes and adult care facilities for a mixed audience).
Pam Zukoski
01:18:23
Do you distribute the booklets and collect them after the presentation? Or do you let them keep the booklets?
Amy DelPo
01:18:39
This is so great -- I'm learning a lot -- thank you!

Some people with dementia have visual issues and are not able to read. Do you ever try audio books with these folks?
Janet Nunziata

Fran De Nardo
01:33:38
Thank you so much for all the information. I am beginning to organizing a Dementia program and or resources at our library. I have first had experience of working with my mom who had Alzheimer's, eventually ending up in a nursing home. I would like to not only be there for people with dementia but also for their caregivers (often the forgotten and invisible people). I am starting with the sharing information because that is fairly inexpensive but hope to have a collection of books and memory kits for both dementia, caregivers and families.
Kelli Jean Cunningham
01:34:37
A reminiscence music program we have done is clapping along or playing sticks to keep rhythm for folks who might not want to sing but still want to be engaged
