  1. At my facility we provide three different socials for our residents each month, the first is happy hour which all of our residents participate in, the next one is our woman's social for the lady's only, and our men's breakfast club for the gentlemen. I chose our men's breakfast club because it is very much different then any of our social programs we provide for our residents, for happy hour our dining services provide food and refreshments for our residents and this takes place in the main dining room, for our woman's social our dining services also provides food and refreshments this takes place in the main dining room as well. our dining services does not provide anything for our men's breakfast club, our men's breakfast club is held in my activities office, my activities office has a full kitchen of it's own, stove top, oven, refrigerator, microwave, and a two compartment sink, No other employees are aloud to use the activity department kitchen. I bake cupcakes for birthday parties, and I cook the men breakfast club in there. I start work at 6:00 a.m. so I could have their breakfast ready by 8:00 a.m.. I would have one activities aide on hand that morning to help with the social. The month before our social I would make a list of what we would need for the breakfast club after that I would summit the list to the owner and she would provide us with the items. The items include: Fresh Fruit, Eggs, Bacon, Sausage, Pancake Mix, Oil, Fat Free Milk, Butter, Syrup, Home Fries, and Cheese, sometimes I make them western omelets that they really enjoy!!! For refreshments we provide orange juice, coffee, hot tea, and creamer. I can fit two long tables in my activities office so our gentlemen can be comfortable. For activities we provide two news papers, a radio, we talk about resent sports events, the local news for their enjoyment, and what ever come to their minds. I think having a special place for our men's breakfast club gives them a feeling of importance and they really enjoy that.Some times they bring things to discuss with each other. For me cooking for our men's breakfast club is easy it's just like cooking for your own family, but your family members are 15+ men. I enjoy it just as much as they do.
