Hey everyone at the community that I am at we have to celebrate a resident for being here for 100 days. We have to make it a big deal, do invites, throw a party and see if the family wants to come. What should I ACTUALLY do during this party to celebrate....other than saying 'Happy
100th DAY HERE!" ??
Please help !

Hi Esther
I guess this depends on what the resident does
Maybe he is a great singer maybe he engages it in a lot of activities maybe he answers a lot of rear questions maybe he makes a lot of friends maybe everyone thinks he’s nice maybe he is a great helper
I think you get the idea

Hi Esther, 100 days, great. What about a show called "THIS IS YOUR LIFE" you can learn a lot about anyone by asking questions from friends, acquaintances and family, we did a couple and sometimes even the family have surprises! Regards Gwyneth

That is a great idea Gwyneth

Hi Esther. 100 days is unusual.. like did they think they would die within the 100 days? Do a trivia on the resident and have the family pick the answers.

Hi Darcy
Thanks for your input
The trivia idea sounds good

Thank you ladies! These ideas were helpful!
Darcy the day is to just celebrate and acknowledge them for being here.
