  1. I would be very wary of this volunteer. My administrator would never let someone in here with this background. Our population is so vulnerable and I cerainly wouldn't have her do anything like a cart where she is unsupervised.

  5. Hi, I go by Activities Director. Just a word of caution. The "Recreation Therapist" is a separate entity with different training behind it and this should not be used as a catch -all if you don't actually have that degree/certification! The word "Therapist" means a different thing than an aide or a director and though there are similarities in the jobs, a person trained as an 'Activities therapist' will usually have different goal priorities than an 'Activities Coordianator'/Director/Aide.
