Sherry 15th Jan 2019 Activity Director
Greetings to other members of this site,

I am fairly new here, but as an Activity Director, for three senior homes, I love all of the activities and exercises. My residents perform 20 minutes of chair exercises, then we use the cognitive activities, from this site, then stories from the "Chicken Soup For The Soul" books. It is a win/win time for me and the residents. I am an Independent Contractor in this position and the only true entertainment they have. This site is the best.

Oh thank you so much Sherry, your kind words mean so much to us! Wow you have your hands full with 3 senior homes but it sounds like you have it down pat. Chicken soup for the soul stories are great! We plan on adding a number of themed short stories to Golden Carers this year too, everyone loves a good short story!
