Boredom Busters

Multicap have developed strategies for support staff and families to ensure our customers are engaged in meaningful and fun activities during this period.

Some of the activities are intended to be used as methods of passing time and providing entertainment. The strategies are intended to appeal to every level of capability of our customers and we would recommend our customer support network determine for themselves what is most appropriate for the customers being supported. Look through the provided materials and strategies and find which would work best, and use creativity to adapt these activities as appropriate.

These are purely recreational activities to do during this time, depending each individual's available resources and capacity. It is important that we continue to engage our customers in fun activities throughout the day as this will minimise the impact that a sudden change to routine can often cause.
