The changing role of recreation staff in aged care facilities has definatley changed in the 25 years I have worked in this industry. Small group therapy/one-on-one is the only way intervetions that promote quality of life experiences for people who have major barriers to leisure can be succesful. Let us hope that the powers that be recognise the changing role of the recreation staff and see that they have approrite educaton. Many people who manage to stay in the community now may attend respite day care- staff there often need help to run good programs such as your low care suggestions.Congratulations on a great site.
