  1. I have been an AD for almost a year and an activity asst. for nearly 4 yrs. I am currently in a 106 bed LTC facility with a full memory care unit with 24 beds. Recently we got a new gentleman that is still very young in his early 50's, He was once not only a farmer but also a coalminer from KY. It's not that i don't know what kind of activities that should workfor this gentleman but this gentleman is very tearful and looking for his son. He enjoys football but this also upsets him because he thinks his son is playing and he should be there to pick him up. My situation is that he get aggravated easily i would love to make a screw, bolt board for him but i also have to think about the safety of the other residents...any suggestions? His son is 19 and this gentleman thinks he's 14.
  2. Pennie this news is absolutely right...I took the MDS 3.0 training on Monday the 23 and Tuesday the 24th. From my experience on these two days it's going to be an adjustment...but has been along time in coming...Also my facility is implicating the icare plans. The MDS 3.0 starts on October the 1st...i'm surpised that you haven't been trained for this yet...But after a few days of them i'm sure they will be like a comfortable shoe that fits perfectly...
