I am starting my 2nd day as a Life Enrichment Coordinator and am loving it. I subscribed to your site to learn more about the assisted living world. I am loving the hands-on ideas and thoughtful articles. Thank you!!
Colleen Dvorak Life Enrichment Coordinator United States
I've just became an activities coordinator at a nursing home, but unfortunately I've got no support and don't know where and how to start.
the previous activities coordinator, used to plan a monthly diary... can some one, please, help me doing one and give some ideas and opinions.
i'll be very grateful.
Thank you all in advance.
happy new year.
Also, as soon as you can, recruit a couple of volunteers to assist you; it makes a world of difference. This link may help you: https://www.goldencarers.com/how-to-establish-a-volunteer-program-/4229/
All the best, you will be fine.
it was really hard and I didn't have resources to use for activity and found it extremely difficult.. an engagement lead in one of our other homes put me on too this website and it is honestly been fantastic.. I started a button tree cause I found a massive pot of buttons and spot the difference went down really well.
hope you have luck in your journey, and don't give up as it is extremely rewarding . GOOD LUCK xx
