Another Fun Idea:
Ice cream sundae social

I worked at a facility that had a rehab.and high percentage of room visit residents.
This activity was great because the residents always looked forward to it each week.
Just make up a cart from the kitchen and put ice cream,syrups,bananas,nuts,whipped cream,and cherries.you will also need a scooper,knife,spoons,napkins and small paper bowls.
Go to each room and make individual sundaes for each resident,while your making them take time to chat about their day and anything new thats going on.
Then when your done with the room visit residents go to the main activity room and hold your Ice Cream Sundae social for the rest of your residents.
You can make it fun by giving "ice cream vouchers" during the week before each social as prizes for bingo or other games,pass out to your room visit residents for participating in other room visit programs.
