Jodie 4th Jan 2018 Recreation Activities Officer


Hello, I am in my first 12 months of working since completing my Leisure an Health certificate. I have been in aged care for the past 7 years, primarily as a carer.

My current workplace is a 65 bed Aged Care Facility. I am finding before lunch is when I get most participation for group activities, after lunch most of my residents go back to there rooms and my groups are much smaller. I tend to focus on more 1:1 activities at this time.

Just out of curiosity are your workplaces like this? how many group activities would you say you carry out a day? are you also getting in 1:1?

looking forward to reading your comments.
