  4. Hi Michelle, I would suggest that you find time to continue your own leisure and hobbies interests.. Sometimes Activity Directors are so giving of themselves that they forget.. also.. Sometimes you may feel like you can never do enough.. Take a step back and know that you are making difference and cant always do everything all the time! and always.. always.. have a smile and have fun! -Miguel

  7. It is hard to believe that I have been affiliated with this site for close to 6 years now.. This website along with the NCCAP website really are the ones who got me where I need to be professionally today.. and little did I know that when I first started networking on the ADN I would be working for them years later! The Activity Directors Networks educational standards are awesome and I have to say their workshops and educational classes are comparable to some online College classes I have taken! So a big.... huge.. KUDOS to all the staff of the Activity Directors Network! Close to

  10. Hi Jennifer! Sometimes I feel that Activity Directors get bogged down with the image that if there are not large group activities with 20 or more residents than activities is not doing their job. Activity professionals need to understand that activities vary depending on each and every person.. you may have those that like to attend group activities.. Those that like to stay in their rooms (making the activity departments role into a supportive one) and those that are so busy with their friends and family and doing their own thing.. I would suggest that you really look at what your
  11. Welcome Ivone to Sunny Southern California! Orange county is one of the largest counties with Nursing Homes and Assisted Living Facilities so finding a job should not be hard.. Just may take some time and work! A position was available at our sister facility in Lake Forest (I almost took it) but I believe it has been filled. I would suggest you get involved in the Orange County Activity Directors Association (OCADA) or SCAAP (the Southern California Association of Activity Professionals) these organizations can give you some leads as to what may come open! Thank you for being NCCA
  12. Hi Doug.. I think your brochure looks great! The only advice I would give would be the following.. 1. Always be willing to work with facilities about charges to entertain, You need to understand that many activity departments (primarily in skilled nursing) are faced with very small budgets. I personally will not pay an entertainer more than $50.00 an hour.. I think that charging a facility 100.00 for an hour is a little extreme.. But some facilities can afford it. 2. LIke someone mentioned earlier.. Send out promotional flyers and a demo CD for the facilty activity director t
