I am starting my 2nd day as a Life Enrichment Coordinator and am loving it. I subscribed to your site to learn more about the assisted living world. I am loving the hands-on ideas and thoughtful articles. Thank you!!
Colleen Dvorak Life Enrichment Coordinator United States
I truly am so grateful I have found this group. I am looking forward to your emails everyday and it feels like it has given me a new lease on my working life as I went through a rough patch for a while. So thank you from the bottom of my heart for what you do!
I'm coordinator at Eyres House Memory Support Planned Activity Group in Ballarat Australia. We run a program for those who have a diagnosis of dementia, or any other cognitive decline.
We have been closed to clients since the 20th March. I have been keeping in contact with my clients & carers by phone mainly. I have sent weekly correspondence with easy quizzes and activities found mostly on this website - thank you all. I have also made up activity packs & dropped them to some of my clients who are either higher functioning or have a carer that will help them. I have included craft & cooking packages. Colouring books & pencils, word searches, novels, DVD's & jigsaw puzzles.
But now I need your help, I'm running out of ideas. If any of you are doing the same, I'd love to know what ideas you have come up with.
It sounds like you are doing a great job
Have you tried any of these ideas
