Hi all,

I am new to this group. I have worked as an activity assistant in a carehome, but have just got a job as an activity coordinator in a new home opening in September. I am sooooo excited but very nervous too. I really want to be amazing at my job.
This site is so useful. I have already made use of the weekly activity sheets.
I am looking forward to having lots of refreshing idea's from everyone on here and also sharing my own ideas.

Hello Sarah, From an older Volunteer Social Co-ordinator, of over 30 years I would like to wish you all the best in your new home opening in September. I joined Golden Carers at the beginning of the year, and I enjoy it very much, I'm sure you will too. I have enjoyed all my volunteering positions, and as you say this is a great site for new ideas. It will help you a lot, and it is nice to hear that you will be sharing some of your own ideas to this site as well. Good luck Gwyneth

Wow Sara congratulations
Being an activity coordinator is a lot more difficult than being an activity assistant
However it sounds like you are extremely enthusiastic which is very important I wish you the best and look forward to answering any questions you may have again congratulations on being a new activity coordinator and also for being a member of this great golden Carers group
