Hi Valerie,

To tell you the truth I have never celebrate the DT week. However, I believe that any excuse is a good excuse to have a celebration. Here is one idea on how to do it.

How to celebrate Diversional Therapy week

Many facilities celebrate it with a morning tea and activities for staff, residents and their relatives and volunteers. The idea is to promote the benefits of leisure and recreation for people living in long term care organizations and other health care facilities. Some of the activities featuring on this special day should be the ones highlighting the physical, spiritual and emotional needs of clients which recreation staff strives to meet on a daily basis; often without much support and/or funds.

I hope this can be of some help.
