  5. Hi, I have a question about charting... I have always done all of the charting { in the medical charts} in my past jobs, at my new jobs the assistants hve done some of it, which is fine by me!! but my question is do they have to be certified as a AA to do so? or does it not matter. I thought you had to be but they say you do not. Please let me know if you know the answer thanks!!! niscie :-D
  6. Thanks everyone for the great advice!! It is very helpful!!!!! Niscie :-D
  7. Thanks Pennie, this is a huge help, its a great form also!! :-D
  8. Hi all I need your help and input :-? , I just started out at a new facility and I have 2 assistants and just hired a 3rd. The director before me was related to one of the assistants, and had a loose management style, which has affected the department. { when I started there wasn't even a work schudele made!} the biggest issue I feel I am going to face is making changes in the schedule. Everyone will take turns working holidays, late, and weekends. {one assistant is working antoher job part time, and only on weekends, so I feel she is one who will give me the most beef } There are other issues also such as coming in 10-15 mintues late, talking on cell phones and cancelling or changing activities as they see fit!! I have talked to my adim. and told her that I wanted to kinda hang back and see how they do things then make changes in a week or so, then I will put new rules and changes in to place. please give me some ideas and your ground rules.Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  9. Hi i have just started as a AD in a new facility, the assessment form they are using must be 20 years old!! I am hoping one of you can send me a copy or yours or a sample so I can make my own!! Many Thanks!!!!
  10. Thanks Ever so much!!!! Our first meeting was last week, and was a flop to say the least!! :-( we had no families show up, so my adim. got one family member who was on the way out the door to come in grab some food, and talk for a few. We planned on going over Medicare part D. We were told at first we only had to do them once a quater now they want them ever month. Its crazy!!And with the hoildays right around the conner we think no one will show for the next 2 either. We are hoping the family members will become more intrested. Also its the social services lady, my adim, and I running the meetings.
  11. This is a great idea!!! I am going to use it, we all could use this and other fundrasing ideas I am sure!! Thanks! :-D
  12. Hi My Adim. just informed me that we need to start a family council, I have no idea how to start it or what to cover in the meeting, anyone that can give me some info, it will be a great help! Thanks.

    this is a e-mail i got that i wanted to share.. it is a ture story. A 92-year-old, petite, well-poised and proud man, who is fully dressed each morning by eight o'clock, with his hair fashionably coifed and shaved perfectly applied, even though he is legally blind, moved to a nursing home today. His wife of 70 years recently passed away, making the move necessary. After many hours of waiting patiently in the lobby of the nursing home, he smiled sweetly when told his room was ready. As he maneuvered his walker to the elevator, I provided a visual description of his tiny room, including the eyelet sheets that had been hung on his window. "I love it," he stated with the enthusiasm of an eight-year-old having just been presented with a new puppy. "Mr. Jones, you haven't seen the room; just wait." "That doesn't have anything to do with it," he replied. "Happiness is something you decide on ahead of time. Whether I like my room or not doesn't depend on how the furniture is arranged .. it's how I arrange my mind. I already decided to love it "It's a decision I make every morning when I wake up. I have a choice; I can spend the day in bed recounting the difficulty I have with the parts of my body that no longer work, or get out of bed and be thankful for the ones that do." "Each day is a gift, and as long as my eyes open I'll focus on the new day and all the happy memories I've stored away. Just for this time in my life." "Old age is like a bank account. You withdraw from what you've put in." "So, my advice to you would be to deposit a lot of happiness in the bank account of memories. Thank you for your part in filling my Memory bank. I am still depositing."
