Activities are now an integral part of life in a care home, giving residents a structure to their day and something social to look forward to. Quizzes are one of the most popular activities with residents but rarely done on a regular basis because of the time it takes to prepare them! It is usually not cost effective to run a quiz for this reason.
I have several years experience of running activities in care homes, including a weekly quiz. I have amassed a wealth of questions I would love to share. For as little as one pound a week you can have a quiz emailed to your care home, allowing you to run a quiz without all the hard work. Once you have the right material anyone can run your quiz (see our top tips page).
Tailor Made For Care Homes
My quizzes are tailor made for elderly people for use as a group activity in care homes. They are non-competitive quizzes designed to appeal to residents of all abilities suiting both the quiz connoisseur and those who have difficulty with memory.
You will find a broad range of subjects covered in our questions, including funny and silly questions as well as more serious ones, all appropriate to the age group.
Running a quiz as a weekly activity in your care home could be easier than you think, giving your service users something to look forward to and something to keep them thinking! My quizzes are designed to run for around 45 minutes to one hour, an ideal length of time for an activity.
