  1. Anyone have recommendations for diffusers that work well? So far, Im comparing S&S Worldwide with Nasco. Are there others out there to choose from? Thanks for any help!
  2. Do any of you provide evening activities between 5p and bedtime? What works best when preparing to facilitate evening activities?
  3. Hey All! Long time no see!! We have an upcoming visit from the Department of Justice. I was wondering if anyone has gone through it, and if so could you give me some insight on what they might look for within recreation/activities? TIA for any info!!

  5. Here is a wiki link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Loter%C3%ADa
  6. What types of activities/events do your volunteers do with your residents? Also, when you have just one person who wants to volunteer, what do they normally do? Thanks for any help/ideas!
  7. THANKS Cindy! Any other ideas will be greatly appreciated as well.
  8. Hey everyone. I am looking for ideas for our family council meetings. We would like to do something fun that gets our residents AND their families involved. Anything other than family day picnics?? Thanks in advance!
  9. Is there a standard definition describing what "participates in 2/3 of the time, 1/3 of the time, etc."? i.e. - what is considered less than 1/3 amount of time?
  10. Does anyone have any experience with a person who has this diagnosis? If so, could you enlighten me with your care-plan info? We have a resident who has Trisomy 21, MR-moderate, and Smith-Magenis Syndrome. The resident does not communicate well. She recognizes tones (i.e. when asked how are you doing, she can respond "fine"; she can also respond with "good morning" when spoken to). Other than this, she cannot respond to anything and has not done well with tactile stimulation. Any care plan ideas for this resident will be most helpful. Thanks!!

    Wii

    We finally have all of ours in place. They have been well-received by our residents. We have actually had more success with our LOWER FUNCTIONING residents than with our higher functioning residents. How bout that!! Ive been so excited to see some of our inactive residents come out and play the Wii. Well-worth the purchase.
  12. Actually we changed our plans now........we may have a resident T-ball game instead of the staff playing flag football. What do yall think? Some other ideas Im hoping to do are: male appreciation day: have some classic cars come out and let the residents examine under the hood Female appreciation day: get a local quilting club to come out and show off some quilts
  13. BUMP BUMP!!!! What is everyone planning?? My thoughts are as follows: Flag football game and cookout Train ride Valentine’s Day in May with singing quartet Sock Hop

    For those of you that have these at your facilities, what kind of rules to you have set forth for the staff, including other staff than recreation staff? Also, what are your ways to keep the Wii System secure when you are not there?
  15. What type of activities would you provide for a LTC resident who is deaf, mute, and blind?
