Hi Julie,
I agree with you about your comment 100%.
Staff always think all we do is play games. As soon as they are offered to help or offered a position in this area they always seem to decline. They don't realise the amount of preparing and energy that goes into it. I would suggest when new staff come on board to give them an orientation day into lifestyle also. This will give them the opportunity to see the inside of our work. They may see differently and help us more. I do find we get limited help also to bring residents down to programs.
There has to be a way we can get other staff to support us D/T staff better.
