  3. Unlike the Calendar method, on this type of participation record just records the participation using the 17 choices of activities available each. 31 days across the top, 17 activity types down the side. You will not know what activity was attended without have a Activity Calendar to reference. So for example you have a sheet for resident Tom Jones Bed Bound Cognitively Impaired, you would use the RV-Sensory Stim "S" rows to record his sensory activities, massage, aroma, music record the Response using the "S" responses in the S Stim row on the correct day.

  10. Hi all, I started about 3 months ago here in my facility and I was going through past resident council minutes/documents and it goes all the way back about 10 years ago. My question is what is the policy of how long I should keep the resident council minutes? If it helps, I am in a skilled nursing facility. Thank you all!

  12. We have a facility wide quarantine so I'm kind of at a stand still with ideas. I am new to this facility but not the job and it is hard because I know nothing about the residents here and the staff are already worn out. Somebody help me please!
  13. My facility has issued a facility wide quarantine for all residents. I am not allowed to go into any rooms and that is making it hard for me to document anything for the residents. How do you all document for those residents that are quarantined? What exactly can I do for activities? The staff is already stretched thin.
  14. Hello I am an Activity Director in Oklahoma of an Assisted living facility with about 42 residents. I of course do Resident council once a month and every month i have to come up with a new topic to discuss and I am drawing a blank for December. I did a Covid 19 handout in November.
  15. Great ideas! I like using virtual jeopardy and word competitions to engage seniors, residents and students in isolation/quarantine. For example, you can give everyone a word and have them write down as many words as they can find/make with the letters in the word. Whoever finds the most words gets a token or star, for example. Choose a new word for the activity each day and then, at the end of the week, the person with the most token wins some sort of reward or prize. I like this activity because it's a great way to exercise the brain and (re-)recognize common letter combos such

Are they the exact same course, or is there a difference other then doing it at your own pace? I am wanting to sign up for the course and then go on to be nationally certified. I have been working as an AD for about 9 years, and have already had a 36 hour course, but I thought it would be a nice refresher for me.
  18. Hello, I am not sure about Ohio but in Texas if the resident has diabetes only the nurses or professional can trim residents nails. We use to do nails twice a week but we never cut them. If they are to long etc. the nurse was told about this & she/he would take of it.
  19. Hi there can you trim nails in Ohio? As an activities director?

You may need to host an activity prior to this to make sure each resident has Christmas cards to send or help them get their cards ordered or purchased. Spend December 9th helping residents fill out, address and mail off their cards. Play Christmas carols, serve a warm festive beverage and Christmas treats, and make a day of it!
