Many residents still like to follow sports and will often watch in their own rooms. Let's encourage them to watch together as a group by hosting a tailgate party!
Weather permitting, you can cordon off a section of the parking lot and recruit staff or volunteers to park their cars together and set up a cooking area to grill sausages, hot dogs, and hamburgers. Coordinate with the kitchen staff to provide some side courses like potato salad, baked beans, and coleslaw. Set up tables where residents can eat, and bring everyone back inside to the day room to watch the game on TV.
You can take it to the next level by hosting some friendly bets on which team will win, dressing in team colours, painting faces in team colours and more!
