Hi there. I work as a Clinical Nurse Specialist in Diversional&Recreational Activities for the elderly. I work in a 43 bedded long stay unit. While i know the residents enjoy the activities programme available my biggest problem is other staff. They view my job as a "cushy" one and their comments are very often demeaning. Does anyone have any suggestions to motivate other staff to get involved and see the job as a vital and necessary one. Management are very supportive.
