  1. 1. ©Fran West 2015 2 About the Author Fran West has been a public library manager dealing a lot with elderly patrons. Then she had a mid life creativity, gave up her career, and decided to fly herself around Australia’s coast, taking photos as she went. Much later on, quite by accident, she was asked by two activities coordinators to create some DVDs for the men in their facilities. From that small beginning she has developed a passion (and a business) for creating products suitable for dementia patients and aged care generally. Now there are CDs with interactive jigsaws and quizzes, Photo Downloads, Kindle picture books and wooden jigsaw puzzles. Her photos are also available on a variety of products from Zazzle and CafePress. Check out Fran’s various websites and links: www.alzheimersproducts.blogspot.com.au – Alzheimer’s Products www.amazon.com/author/franwest – Kindle Picture Books www.cafepress.com.au/profile/franwest1 – CafePress Print on Demand www.franwest.com – Fran West: speaker, author, adventurer www.zazzle.com/adventurerfran – Zazzle Print on Demand Author’s Note These quizzes are taken from the Words of Wisdom magazine Issues 1-5. They are meant as a bit of fun with either multiple choice answers or true and false. The answers are underlined and in bold. If you want to make the quiz harder for participants, then just leave out the choice of three answers where appropriate (ideal for low care). There are quizzes on Argentina, Australia, Austria, Brazil, Canada, Croatia, Denmark, England, France, Greece, Holiday and Travel, India, Malta, Mexico, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Scotland, South Africa, South Australia, Sweden, Switzerland, Tasmania, Thailand, The Netherlands, USA, Wales and Western Australia. All the quizzes are in alphabetical order and easy for you to find. Most have twenty questions but not all questions have to be asked at the one time. For high care it may be better to make several mini quizzes out of the one quiz. At the end of each quiz there are also several links which lead to more information and can in turn be used as a basis for a theme day/week and to create further activities. The photos used in the quizzes are all copyright to Fran West.
