My grandmother taught us this song when we were kids. We used to sing it while on long hikes along with Soldier, Soldier Will You Marry Me? Hours of singing. Thank you for sharing and the conjured memory!

How to host a High Tea Party

Hello, we are having a tea party for our dementia residents. Does anyone have any suggestions about which activities we can do? Most of our residents can follow directions easily and some need a little more direction with help. Thank you

How to Conduct an Activities Survey

Hi! I'm an activities lead on my nursing homes dementia unit. I am brand new to this department as I was doing CNA Work but felt so burned out, I needed the switch. My problem is how do I get all levels of dementia to interact and engage in an activity? I am at risk of loosing my position because I was told I am not getting everyone engaged in an activity. I am responsible for 43 Residents with dementia levels from beginning to near end stage. I am not a musically talented person and each time I set up stations some of my Residents "shop" the equipment and the tables are bare. I do crafts and a weekly tea party. Along with bowling and balloon toss. Friday is movie day and manicures. Any advice is greatly appreciated.

12 Tips for Writing Progress Notes

Thanks for the medicare distinction, Susan. And are medicare funded more of the low income communities? Where my parents live is a private company that owns several AL communities. I've never seen medicare mentioned but perhaps it would be listed in the contract? Yeah it's good practice! They don't know what their staff are doing as the director said unless he follows staff around. Mind boggling.

12 Tips for Writing Progress Notes

Hi, When are progress notes required by Assisted Living? I was told today by the state of Virginia Dept of Social Services that charting, recording of daily care of residents at Assisted Livings is not required, not in the state regulations. So how do progress notes fit into this? How is there any beginning of accountability without required notes? Yes staff can lie about it and checkoff even if they didn't do what is in the Care Plan, but not requiring any notes doesn't make sense to me.

Recycled Magazine Scrapbooks

Every Season we make placemats with magazines, calendars, etc. Anything with pictures we can cut out! They go through pictures and cut out what they like and we glue it to a paper placemat! Once it's covered we mod podge it twice, allowing to dry between layers. I remember doing this when I was little in school and believe it or not, it's a hit with our seniors!
