Thank you for your fantastic resources which I have utilised for some time now for the Golden Age Club which our church has run for almost 40 years. Thanks again, you provide a very valuable service which in the years to come will no doubt be more relevant as our population ages.
Yes, I believe they can especially as Solange says if they are resourceful. A good place to start may be to have them schedule 2-3 activities a week to see how they do.
We have to produce 2 calendars. One for our memory support clients and one for everyone else. As coordinator I would put the calendars together using the joint information from discussions. However there is no reason an assistant couldn’t be trained to do them. I always think it’s a good idea to have knowledge of all work areas and tasks. That way the calendar will still go out on time if I was on leave etc.
Also, the calendar is on the shared drive. So when they are ready to input their programs they can do this on their own also. This has been a much more efficient way, and a time saver, to put the programming together each month. Also, it gives them the ownership to their programs they plan.
