Your site is easy to use, I use it more often than the one our consultant has set up! I use so many of your ideas and love the Facebook page where everyone shares ideas, concerns and triumphs! I feel connected to a big wonderful caring society! I am always telling my co-workers how awesome Golden Carers is. I feel it is more in touch with the needs of my residents than many of the other Recreational Therapy sites.

"I am thankful for all that you share with our Activity Coordinator community! I also like that we can help each other out by sharing our creative ideas and post in the Forum's and get feedback from other members! Thank you!"
Here are some ideas
Are you going to have an activity staff person there or is it up to the other staff to do an activity
Some of these suggestions can be done with staff or volunteers or maybe even having the higher functioning residents lead the activity
You could also ask the residents what they want to do
Do you have a lot of family members that come in ??
Do a lot of residents go out of the facility for Thanksgiving ??
You may want to have the kitchen make a special Thanksgiving dinner for those who are staying at the facility
You may want to invite families to join the residents if there’s enough staff to do this
Let us know what you decide to do and how it works out
