Posted in Tips for One-on-One Visits with Seniors

I tried playing word games solving puzzles. Chatting with them. Some help in foldings or sorting more of a functional activity. Generally it can be 5 to 10min. But even if you had a chat it can be social and emotional support.

Hi,
I am interested in finding out what policies are in place in other aged care facilities with regards to happy hour. We have a mobile happy hour trolley for those who do not wish to attend. One of my concerns is that our residents are becoming frail and their dietary requirements are changing and the activity staff with the mobile trolley are leaving alcohol and nibbles and are not always advised of dietary changes. I am concerned that the lifestyle staff are putting the residents at risk as well as themselves should there be an incident.
I welcome your thoughts, opinions and policies.
Regards
Heather
