Hi everyone. First let me say as activity directors we have a lot of hills to climb and hurdles to jump. But once we make it over it is worth the exhaustion and tears. Just the smiles and thank you alone should be enough to make you proud to be an activity director. Never second guess why you are in that position. Just take a look at your success when you see a resident Being positive or when you see a resident helping another. You played a part in that with your activities.

Do anyone have a website where I can go and get activities for Spanish residents? Poems, short stories, trivia and biography. Thanks

Hi, Sunya, On the links below you will find a Spanish song well known in Mexico and the Spanish Americas. A wonderful tune for sing-along. There is also a Mexican Fiesta activity with a few ideas.

Hi Suyna,

What a beautiful reminder, thank you! It can be easy to lose sight of why we do what we do, but you are right; the benefits are in the smallest of moments when working with the residents.

I think that the articles that Solange and Susan shared are wonderful resources!

Best,

Molly
