I really love your website. I still find it incredulous that this site exists. I know how hard it must be for our Lifestyle teams to keep coming up with ideas and activities and to now have found this site - WOW. I really do think it says a lot about the immense value of community collaboration - because this site is about that! so I am immensely proud that people, especially older people, may be benefitting from this wonderful resource all over the world.
I was told that even for the residents to watch an activity, as long as they are engaged, is an activity.
most of my residents sleep and say no to most things...we just go with the flow, best of luck i am sure you are doing a fantastic job :)
It's all fine with others telling us we have to do this and have to do that.....But a lot of residents just want to sleep and have a quiet life...When your in 80's and 90's they are tired, if they want to join they will. I think you covering all the bases and through our training we know what works and we know what doesn't.
