  1. Hi Lydia, I once studies Martial Arts forms very heavily, and of course, never did it occur to me that it would benefit the elderly residents whom I am associated with, until I introduced them to Tai-Chi. It is an Easy Form, or Exercise per say, and there are so many things you can do to variate it to their liking on a daily basis. All of my residents truly enjoy it when they see Tai-Chi written on the calendar. You can purchase books to give you an Idea, but come up with your own little routines to suit the folks. I have adjusted a few of the movements to help the residents do them
  2. Hi Everyone, I am Wendell Greenleaf from Shefield, Al. and I work for a 102 bed LTC Facility. I am currently an Assistant under the guidance of one of the Greatest ADC's in the country by far. I am a determined person, especially when it comes to the happiness and well-being of my residents, and because of this, I feel strongly that I have found my niche' in life. I hope everyone of you feel strongly about this profession as I do. I look forward to spending alot of time sharing ideas and time with some of the greatest people on this palnet, and that would be the activities personnel,
  3. Just a quick insert here. I suggest also trying to take them on outings that men love. I just took one of my residents fishing this week, and he caught a few catfish. The fellas also enjoy pitching washers(and Quarters)!! We use the washers in place of pitching quarters, and they have a ball. Lastly, I have noticed that the men also enjoy watching the old sitcoms such as Bonanza, Andy Griffith Show, and the latest addition to ur library that has become evryone's favorite, "The Hee Haw Show". Good Luck with your plans to make those fellers happy.
  4. Hello to all, I have had fun recently with a new 1:1 activity. One of my residents is unable to come to group events due to diagnosis, but she is able to function pretty well, and she really enjoyed participating in this activity and learning a new trade. I learned how to do simple Balloon Animals by purchasing a book of Animal Balloons made easy. I went to my 1:1 residents and they loved it!! How wonderful it is to see a smile on those beautiful faces. ;-)
