I'm Gonna Sit Right Down And Write Myself a Letter Singalong & Exercise

Hi Everyone. Music activities are the best! I use the song I’m gonna Sit Right Down ..... lots of times! When I play the piano I like to add trivia about the tunes. I give the dates these wonderful songs were written and the writers! Many songs are over 100 years old! Adding exercise to the activity is wonderful!!!! Thanks again

COVID-19: Taking Care of Your Mental Health

Hello to all dedicated Activity Professionals. In my personal self-care program, I practice taking my work ‘one day at a time’, and I add to that flexibility, patience and positive mindset. Not easy some days! Following strict guidelines put in place because of Covid is presenting challenges. Adapting to changes can be frustrating. I am grateful to be of service to my residents, families and co-workers. Never lose hope and faith that we will get through this challenge! Carpe diem

COVID-19: Taking Care of Your Mental Health

Self care is extremely important especially during these days of lockdowns with new rules and regulations in place. Practice self-care daily. Use all the tools we use with our residents: music, art, meditation and prayer. It works.
