  1. That sounds like a fun activity spankylee99! I love that the surrounding neighborhood is a part of it too! I hope that you will be able to do it this year. We had a Mardi Gras Pet Parade down the halls of the assisted living community where I volunteer. An animal rescue group conducted the parade. The dogs were dressed in cute Mardi Gras outfits. The residents wore colorful beads, feather boas and Mardi Gras masques. After the dogs strutted their stuff, the residents had a little party and ate King Cake. This happened about two weeks before the facility had to stop allowing visitors in due to the coronavirus.

  2. That sounds great spankylee99! Thank you! I'll meet you in the Chatbox at 6:30pm tomorrow! I'm a volunteer at an assisted living community. I work in another field right now. I'm not sure when I'll be able to go back to my assisted living community. I can't wait until I'm able to become an Activity Director, and I appreciate you being a part of my journey. 


  3. When I saw this, I started thinking about possible ways the residents could make them. Ever since I started this course my mind seems to see things in terms of activities for seniors. (I work in another field right now.) Last night I happened to be up late watching TV, and I saw one of those "as seen on TV, only $19.99" commercials. It was for a product called, No Stitch. It comes with a heat wand and a bottle of adhesive powder. They sell it at Wal-Mart. What are your thoughts on that?

  4. What are some of your favorite websites for activity professionals?

    I don't work in the industry yet. I'm a volunteer at an assisted living community, and I'm taking the MEPAP-1 course. These are some of the professional resources that I've used for my coursework.  The top five sites have inspired me the most.













    I just discovered a public group on Facebook called, The Activity Directors Desk. I've already gotten a couple of great ideas from this page.

    Because of a Final Practicum assignment, I  found the www.activitydirector.net site. I think that this will be a fun and informative website.

  5. Hi there! My name is Sonya Sullivan. I volunteer once a week at an assisted living community in Houston. I work in another field right now.  I'm taking the MEPAP-1 OwnPace course. I can't wait to actually work in this field! This course and my weekly volunteer opportunity are giving me invaluable hands-on experience. (However, I couldn't go there to volunteer this week due to the community 's Covid-19 precautions. It looks like I won't be able to go in next week either for the same reason.) 

  6. I love the No Sew Sock Bunny craft! I volunteer at an assisted living community in Houston. They have a deaf resident living there. I did an easy Valentine's Day craft with her. She loved it. I was looking for an easy Easter project to do with her. We communicate via pen and paper.  I hope that I'll be allowed back in before Easter. The place is not allowing visitors in right now.
