A report directly from an Activity Specialist:
“The desire to learn does not change as someone ages. During this time of virtual connections, it is still important to explore this opportunity. I mailed a packet to my client Joe, including a list of YouTube links that his care team could show him. At our scheduled time, I called Joe via FaceTime so we could engage eye to eye, stimulating him cognitively and providing him with a larger sense of community.
The research topic addressed Joe’s love of archaeology. As he studied images of the Rosetta Stone, we discussed the historical significance of translating the stone. After a brief introductory video clip, Joe stared intently as I described my experience of seeing the Rosetta Stone, in person, when I was still in college. Joe nodded firmly, agreeing to a comment on how important learning is and the value of college, an opinion Joe feels very strongly about. We said farewell and the care team started a documentary on the Rosetta Stone for Joe to view.
Later, the care team informed me that Joe insisted on watching additional videos about the Rosetta Stone after the documentary finished, clearly engaged and intrigued. His love of learning was alive and well!”
