Thank you Susan that is a great start. I love the online courses that are available there. Especially the understanding dementia online course appeals to me.

Next to these online options I will also continue looking for a face-to-face training option. If anybody has any suggestions or recommendations for that please reach out to me.

Good day all, I am looking for education for activity officers. Where I live there aren't any schooling options in this field so I am looking to offer my staff additional training to expand their knowledge. Everything they are doing now comes from good intentions and practice, which is going well. All our clients are happy with them however I would like to see more variety and structure in the programs. As well as expanding their knowledge to work with clients with e.g. Alzheimer's.

There are a lot of possibilities online but not all seem genuine or matching with my needs. I was wondering if any of you have any suggestion or recommendations for me. I am looking for an entry level education in English, especially for working in nursing homes with adult clients.

I would also be interested in direct contact with an educator from the field and discuss the possibilities of doing a custom made training either online or in person (or combination).

Hoping there is somebody out there who can help me.

Is there a way to change the calendar back to start at the beginning of the week, Monday? It now breaks up the weekend which is strange. We would like to continue with the consistency that was in place already.

Hi Oliver, just wanted to let you know that I love the 'check list' idea. That way he feels he has a purpose and he recognizes elements from the past. Very nice.
Would a 'work station' be a possibility? A place where he can go to to do several of the checklist items in one spot. A sensory board that suits his wishes. I will attach a picture of an example I found on google. Perhaps that will keep the gentleman entertained and engaged for a longer period of time.
Last year I visited a nursing home nearby and they had a device called the Omi Vista, a digital sensory table. That looked great and could possible help you as well.
