Finding a Connection
Each month, we play a game called “Scene It? Classic Movie Edition” with the residents as an activity. It’s pretty fun watching old movie clips and answering the question that follow. The game is to listen to a famous song or to a famous quote and then try to remember who said it or sang it. We don’t play the game exactly by the book, but instead just keep playing the movie clips and answering the questions.
This activity gives us time to reminisce about the classic movies or what our residents were doing during that time, or how old they were when it came out. We talk about their favorite movie stars or the beautiful starlets, the dresses they wore or what made them famous.
But what really makes them feel great is when they can say, “Oh, I don’t know that movie, it was before my time!”
