Hi just like to get some ideas on how we can celebrate cultural celebrations like Italian day and Philippine's Independence Day during covid 19. We accept family visitors now in our facility on staggered basis and needs to make appointment with our GM. Only 2 family members are allowed to come and 2x a week and required to have their flu vax and present the evidence of vaccination. And no cross over yet of residents from different wings. Pls. give some of your ideas.

I work in an aged care facility. What would you write on resident's evaluation when the resident does not participate in any of the activities despite of encouragement by team members? And communicated that living in an aged care is like living in a prison. Resident used to participate in activities but changed. when encouraged to join in outing before COVID 19, will plan to join but on the day will change the mind. A Catholic and used to attend the church service but declined to attend for a while.

Daily Living Activities

I work as lifestyle asst and when we have cooking I supervise the residents involve in cooking. I ask them to wash their hands and dry, wear gloves, apron and hair net. Others are happy watching and enjoy reminiscing. Normally we prepare for their afternoon tea.
