Hi everyone. I'm new to the forum and finding it fantastic so far. I was wondering if anyone works in a hospital as an activity coordinator? I've been in my role for over a year now but i havent been able to make an activity plan as the patients are constantly changing and as it's a dementia an delirium unit the patients abilities range massively.
Has anyone any ideas for activities that aren't just one thing but several that flow into each other. So if a patient can't do one part of it they may be able to do another.
When I play music we also sing while others that can't or don't want to play instruments, so I'm looking for other activities which you can do the same sort of thing. It's very difficult when there's just one person doing activities when the patients can be early or end stage dementia.
I would appreciate any help as at the minute we seem to be doing the same things a lot. Balloon games seem to be a winner at the minute
Thanks in advance
