Summary An exploration of how the residents of a 30 bed unit for confused older people spent their time and a description of the impact upon this of any associated factors. The study demonstrates that it is possible for for elders with dementia and mental health problems to enjoy a range of activities, however, these need to be individualised to take into account the skills they have to meet the challenges with which they are presented. The informed contribution from the activities personnel and the support of nurses is vital to ensure a high quality of social interaction. Sound leadership at the clinical level is essential.
