is it only you and her and how many do you look after,,,in our facility we have 5 areas and i am able to coordinate my area with all ideas and entertainment. We come together monthly and have activity meetings where we share and input ...Have you suggested this to her like you should have meetings that way you can work out a monthly plan of activities...and a meeting is exactly that to assist and bring new ideas. approach her quietly and say that your not feeling valued ....and that you have so much to offer i would go further if this doesnt succeed..She seems to be very narrow minded and is not giving the residents their fullest opportunity to have a enhanced lifestly programme...good luck

10 Ways to Improve Activity Participation

We have the children from the day care centres come, residents just love the involvement..Children sing a few songs and get them all happy and laughing, they then bring jigsaw puzzles and mingle with the residents. They have did craft and colour in. The residents also then take kids around the facility to show them where they live or the gets them walking and making friendships lots of hugs given by the kids and the folks...We are also looking this year at planting flowers with the children and some potplants this way children can chat and ask residents to see how garden is It has been a huge success
