Julie 4th Jul 2011 CNS Diversional&Recreational Activities for the Elderly
I would just like to complement all activity personnel and therapists in both Australia and New Zealand. Here in Ireland based on my experience the post is not recognized as a valid one. All activity nurses and carers that i know have to face negative comments on a daily basis.Its very hard to keep motivated for your residents when some staff just don't see the necessity of providing meaningful stimulation for the elderly. Not all units are the same but we still have a long way to go. On the plus side the residents i care for enjoy the activity programme and at the end of the day thats all that matters.
