The Magic of Being Silly

We do a segment called "Friday Funnies", 15 minutes between classes where we just
tell jokes and funny stories. More often then not, I hear the residents repeating them in
the hallways and lunch room. Laughter is truly the best medicine!

16 Ways to Encourage Negative or Pessimistic Residents to Attend Activities

I have one grouchy resident who made a suggestion of "Events of (a particular year) exp. 1949" every week we would do a new year. I found online that gives all the info for a year. Important News and Events Stories, Cost of Living, Technology and Pop Culture, trends, fashion etc. It became quite a popular activity.

20 Tips on Asking For Donations

For the last year and a half, I have had no budget. Everything I have done and received has been through donations and fundraisers. We have several craft shows per year, this is where we make the bulk of the money. Family Fun Night with entertainment where family can join for dinner at $7.00 each, $2.00 of which comes to the Activity Dept. We get our vendors to donate gift baskets and we sell raffle tickets. Just after Thanksgiving we have "In House" shopping days, where for $15.00 a vendor can set up their items and my residents get to shop without leaving their home. The booth fee comes to the activities dept. We have bake sales, hot boiled peanut sales, Silent Auctions on residents art work, just to name my top producing sales. Good Luck!
