All participants receive a comprehensive handout with ideas and instructions for a range of creative word-based activities with older people.

Participants are encouraged to bring a USB for downloads of further resources.

Audience - Program Coordinators and Managers, Diversional Therapists, Activity Officers, Volunteer Coordinators and Volunteers who work with clients in these settings.

Presenter - Glen Sorensen - Managing Director of Age Communications, the company he founded in 1988. He has worked for over 35 years in the aged care industry with all levels of government, home care and residential care providers and seniors themselves.
