Hi everybody. I have a female resident on our memory care. She has dementia middle stage. I have my assistant to do a 1:1 group for several of our memory care residents that want sit still for long. And she is a part of that group in the mornings. I have created activities for each person to work on. She is one that if you put paper or a magazine in front of her she will eat it or tear it. I have spoke with her family to bring items from home that she once loved. She like Christian music so we play it for her. She sung in the church choir so we have had sing alongs. Do any of you have any other ideas of what else I can do for her. I am going to try doll therapy with her to see how she take to that. Thanks in advance

Hi everyone. First let me say as activity directors we have a lot of hills to climb and hurdles to jump. But once we make it over it is worth the exhaustion and tears. Just the smiles and thank you alone should be enough to make you proud to be an activity director. Never second guess why you are in that position. Just take a look at your success when you see a resident Being positive or when you see a resident helping another. You played a part in that with your activities.

Do anyone have a website where I can go and get activities for Spanish residents? Poems, short stories, trivia and biography. Thanks

Hello everyone I have a question. Do you have your activity assistant plan the monthly activity calendar at your nursing home?

I have the local high school ROTC coming to salute our veterans, guest speaker,local band and the VFW rider crew. We will have a special pinning as well. Honoring our veterans will be a big event.

Hi Heather. I am an Activity Director and a CNA at a nursing home with a memory care unit. Everything you wrote shows how unprofessional that staff is on the memory care unit. That do need to be reported to The DON and the Administrator. That is abuse in so many ways. What people forget is the resident’s whether they are in the home or memory unit still have rights. Where is the Activity director in all of this? He or she should have a program in place for the resident’s. It sounds like to me that they are on their own. Please report this and bring awareness to what is happening in there. You are their voice.

Hello I have a question? Can you make a matching activity like the one you have under Dementia (name that car) with movie stars pictures and old sitcoms with their names? Thanks Sunya Sauls
