Hi Yvonne
I sense your frustration and I feel bad
You can only do what you can do
Can you get any family members to help you out even if it’s just friendly phone calls to some of the residents
Perhaps they could send cards to the residents
I think activity packets are a good idea but the residents have to be able to do the activities independently
I hope you do not have too many residents who are sick because that would be a real problem
All I can say is hang in there and do the best you can

Hi, I am an activity director at a skilled facility and our governor has discontinued all group activities and communal dining for 5 months. I have had activity cart going room to too, bunker bingo, special snacks like ice cream floats, drive by parades, virtual vacations, FaceTime appointments that I can barely keep up with. I am the only activity person our facility has 38 beds, very small. I also do hair, nails and am expected to assist with daily meal deliveries. My residents cry to me daily. I am either the residents fill-in daughter and the floor staffs mother. I am drowning, how is everyone else keeping up? Any suggestions? What should I be doing during the Covid restrictions.

Did I mention I do not get any hazard pay (the nurses and aids do) and they want me to maintain 40 hours a week, nights and weekends are required. I am fried!!
