  1. Hey dreamaker7) waht is a western shoot out? I am just stumped on how you would do that or wat do you do for that ? thanks for your help but this really stumped me up i have the brain teasers sometimes lol
  2. . Does your facility involve live musical entertainment in its activities programs? yes 2. If not, is there a specific reason...would you consider using live musical entertainment? na 3. If you utilize live musical entertainment, do you use volunteers only, paid entertainers or both? we use all if they are free to us money is tight 4. Are there any specific types of music your clients especially enjoy? country ( old) 5. Are there any specific songs you think musicians should have in their repetoire? Down on the river 6. Is there anything you wish musicians would do (or not do) when they perform at your facility? no we have had really good ones that know what they are doing 7. Any other thoughts, ideas or comments? na
  3. How do you go about asking people like the bank to donate prizes or food when you do big things like that. because when i do big things i can get wal-mart to donate a cake or cookies and i and the facility have to pay for the rest and i am the one doing it all from decorating to serving the food. so what do you say to the bank and your volunteers to where they will help you out?
  4. Hi, how are you doing? My name is Hailey if you ever have any questions just ask and i might be able to help. Great to have you with us!!

    Wii

    Well at our facility i have an activity closet that i can lock so i lock it up in there when i am not here. As for staff using the wii it is not allowed says our don do to that they could be doing other important things for our resident, just leave them games to the activity and therapy staff. You could also get a fire saftey box to lock it up in and then lock your activity office then hopefully it would be safe there, and or you could lock it up in your admin, office thoes are just some of the things i do sometimes. hope that helps
