First of all thanks for everyone's input on ideas during the Covid-19 pandemic. I feel I speak for most that at times it was challenging for even the best of creative minds.
I am in need of help with program ideas for only 1 activity coordinator dealing with group activities. As of June 18th my part-time coordinator is retiring and the other is going on maternity leave. As Director ;I know I can multitask, however would like ideas that are for groups and handling it alone. Any resources would be greatly appreciated. Our program focuses on MIND _ BODY_ SPIRIT.
Thank you

Hi Dawn
This is quite a challenge
Do you have volunteers that could help you or maybe high functioning residents that can help you
How about staff members from other departments??
If you are still alone I always said a music activity was good because many people like music

Also exercise is a group good group activity because you could have many participants

Anyone can take something from this and make an activity out of it or people can do it independently
