I work in a facility with 32 Low care residents, 13 dementiaspecific and 75 high care residents. I am trying to redo the programming to for low care to be being more time friendly to do associated paperwork, yet keep residents happy with the activities that are offered. Does anyone have any suggestion?

Hi patricia we get the residents involved running the activites, such as bingo call the numbers, quiz, short stories, find what your residents strengths are you will be surprised at the response residents want to feel usefull.

I had a resident who used to collect the shredding. We set her up with her own office space with a desk and shredder with bins to keep the unshredded paperwork and to empty the shredder. We used the papers in the compost barrel which another resident had the job of watering and turning daily.
