Maude 13th Feb 2018 Leisure therapist
Hello everybody! I need suggestions... I work as a recreational therapist in 2 different centers. The organization I work for comes from the federal government. The ministry is asking us to have an activity program 7 days a week. Since I'm not in the 2 centers all week long, I would need your suggestions to find activities that caregivers and Beneficiary Attendants can do with the residents when I'm not there. Do you think of anything other than coloring, manicuring and playing a movie?

Thank you,
