Cue Cards


Speaking English can be tiring to the elderly – as they are engaging in a translation-type of process.

Many elderly people revert back to their native language as they aged.

Elderly people finding themselves in a new environment can be a little apprehensive to communicate as they may feel that no one will understand what they are trying to convey.

These cue cards have been put together to assist staff, Carers and/or volunteers to communicate more easily with the person in their care.

Print them and laminate them to make them a very useful tool, which can be used by all staff, carers and/or volunteers during the caring process.

More Cue Cards will be added in due course. If there is a language that you would like as soon as possible do not hesitate to contact us or leave a message below in the comments.

    Hello. Any chance of getting some Japanese cue cards added? We have a Japanese client who no longer remembers much English so Japanese cue cards would assist greatly not only for the client but for staff to learn some Japanese too! Thank you.

    We have just completed our accreditation and these cue cards have been fantastic. I now have a range of different nationalities at my facility and trying to track down these cue cards, or even trying to make them up myself I just do not have the time.
    Being a coordinator time is very precious and I love the fact I can come on to this site and download what I need for any theme days, Accreditation purposes, Dementia specific and even preparing for the month ahead. we all know how busy our positions are and to receive this assistance is something I am very grateful for, it means I can be with my residents more and even offer a good quality program. So thank you guys!!!
