Hi,
I started training in my almost mid fifties. I am now well over 70 and still work in the field of activities. And mostly enjoy it. The book work I do not enjoy, technology and I do not get on very well. I love the Residents, some of whom I am older than. Keeps me going.
You are never too old to take on new adventures. Go for it. I am Australian too, by the way.

Bird Seed Wreath

Have made similar feeders with open pine cones, hand made wire hook attached to top of cone. Then a mixture of peanut butter and birdseed pushed into openings. Then a quick roll in birdseed and hang it outside next day.
A very tactile and pleasing activity. Birds loved it.

I am going to give it a try. It sounds like fun, just so long as I don’t have to do 5he singing. Their poor ears.

How to Avoid Burnout

This article is so true.
More than time a few of us took "own time" !
Perhaps those in charge should read and obsorb this article, then work on it, to help their staff.
Thank you for the article, it should surely help a lot of caring and Activity staff to understand what is happening. I have always said that carers and Activity staff should get a week off every three months, apart from their annual leave. It would help with this problem, and make the work place a happier place for all concerned.
