Thanks everyone! Yeah it feels a little overwhelming sometimes. I think I just need to worry less perhaps. Yes you are right Jean. In my head I feel like the aim is to have everyone involved but that isn't possible with 22 different personalities.

I am looking for some advice. I have been working as an activity coordinator for about three months now in the UK. Right now I feel totally burnt out. We have been in a lockdown since I started work. I can't even buy newspapers to bring in for them. I have organised things such as making juice with a juicer, we do dancing and I even got a horse to visit the outside of the building. I'm at the point where I just don't know what else to do. I don't feel like I am a one woman entertainment system. We don't have an activity room as such more a lounge where the residents sit around the edge. The home I work in is a dementia home. I really like my job and like the residents a lot but feel like looking for a new job as finding it all very difficult at the moment. Any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks :)
