Hi Fidelma I feel you pain...I coordinate 4 sites in total 500 residents and 13 rao staff. What works for me is visiting each site 1x per week and one day back a head office doing the management side of things (developing policies, procedures, reaserch etc) I need to be very stricked with my time and I have to delegate to rao staff what they have to do at site level. Cooordinators should be there as support person, educator, guide a resources not a doer. Be carefull not to get stuck doing too much and everyones work.

Best of luck

This year I am going for hat for the man & lite summer scarfs for the ladies. In past years I got the small photo album , a nail set, had cream, body was etc

I have over 500 residents to buy for, sometimes finding the right gits that are usefull is difficult.

Hope it helps.
