I have been writing manuals for leisure staff working in aged care for the last eighteen years. My manuals contain ideas on craft, reminiscing programs besidesbingoand games.

My books also provide a practical guide to planning and documenting suitable leisure activities for clients in residential and day care facilities.








Over the past 19 years I have developed a series of resources for recreation staff working in aged care.

Over many years now I have worked as consultant and trainer for recreation staff in residential and community aged care.

It is hard to get to regional areas who often are not able to attend.

I am therefore offering SKYPE training at a very reasonable cost to any facility or centre who need new ideas and staff development for recreation staff.

Email or call me if this interests you. Initial session is free!
