The Daily Sparkle resonates with our residents in a way other papers don’t. They love to read ‘The Way We Were’ section as this can bring back happy memories sometimes lost forgotten.
A very well presented and produced resource with topical and seasonal themes useful for reality orientation, reminiscence therapy, therapeutic and cognitive activity content and also containing sensory session suggestions.
The Daily Sparkle has been a very important part of our daily activities schedule. Our residents look forward to receiving them daily. We use them for group reading, one to one sessions, and room visits. The daily sparkle is a fantastic trigger for memory loss and a wonderful tool for reminiscence and discussions.
We find that the Daily Sparkle covers everything that we need to enrich the lives of our lovely residents. They always look forward to Mondays new edition.
It is a very uplifting magazine, always positive articles and it brings up lots of forgotten memories and great conversations
So easy to use, so many ideas and so many subjects. Its a godsend ! I get to spend more time delivering than planning
Parmenter Care Home
I use it every week, it has lots of different resources so anyone would find something useful. reduces time hunting for appropriately aimed material. It is all really accessible with a great mix of printed material, things available on app, to print or youtube. Just great.
The resources that it provides are easy for both and novice and experienced activity coordinators. A great start to the day
Flexible and accessible
I like the Daily Sparkle as it is an interactive activity, can be used as a one to one or in a group setting. Lots of lovely memories to share and it engages people with all levels of ability.
Dad was getting anxious when he read the newspapers he had delivered to his home daily. Sparkle has been wonderful. Carefully selected topics, lots of images and nostalgic articles which helped to prompt conversation.
I get such a lot of ‘mileage’ from the Daily Sparkle. It is real value for money. The residents read it, I recycle the article in themes to do reminiscing activities, we use the info to create scrap books. The opportunities are endless.
Brilliant concept with very well-chosen content. Mum gets so much satisfaction from the newspapers and magazines. It should be in every care home.
Our residents love the stories and quizzes, it keeps people occupied and they are great for relatives who find conversation hard with their loved ones.
Independence and Wellbeing Enfield
Our residents look forward to it. We always have a chat about the articles and it sparks memories and we always have something to talk about and those conversations lead onto other conversations about totally different things. If there is a song we find it on the smart tv and we sing along.
The Daily Sparkle is very much enjoyed in our community. Residents like to read it each day and it gives us topics for conversations. Highly recommend.
It is an excellent tool that we can use with all residents of all abilities and understanding. The residents really engage in the sessions, sharing their memories with everyone. The extra activities ensure we keep the program filled with new activities and ideas, there is something for everyone.
Fantastic read – always hit the right note – light hearted in places – factual – the pace of writing is easy on the eye with topics, pictures, quizzes, reminiscent features – classy photos – natural history – the Daily Sparkle provides a little sparkle into everyone lives
Our residents love getting their Daily Sparkle and our carers find it very useful as both a conversation starter and means of forming small social groups. It’s Brilliant!
