  1. HI JOYCE - WE HAVE A COMPUTER SYSTEM THAT HAS THE FLOWCHARTS INCORPORATED AND THE ACTIVITY AIDES DOCUMENT ON EACH RESIDENT DAILY. IF YOUR FACILITY DOCUMENTS ONLINE FOR NURSES, ETC, WOULD THERE BE A POSSIBILITY TO BUILD IN A FORM, FLOWCHART THAT ACTIVITIES COULD USE?? KIM HENDRICKSON
  2. hI - I ALSO USE MICROSOFT AND I HAVE THE AIDES DO THEIR OWN ACTIVITIES FOR THE DAYS THEY WORK AND I GET ALL OF THEM TURNED IN THE WEEK PRIOR TO THE NEXT MONTH AND PUT IT ON 8x11 AND USE ANOTHER COPIER TO ENLARGE TO 11x17. EACH DAY THE AIDES PRINT OUT A SHEET WITH FACTS, CROSSWORD ON THE BACK AND THE FRONT PAGE HAS THE DAILY ACTIVITES AND THEY PASS THIS OUT TO EACH RESIDENT (GIVES A CHANCE FOR ONE-ON-ONE AND THEY CAN EASILY READ OR HAVE THE AIDES REVIEW THE DAILY SHEET) THE LARGE CALENDAR IS POSTED AT A LEVEL FOR WHEELCHAIRS AND THOSE WITH WALKERS OUTSIDE OF THE LOUNGE AND AT 11x17 WE HAVE NOT HAD ANY CONCERNS. IT IS LARGE PRINT/ JUST BLACK AND WHITE. THE DAILY SCHEDULE BEING PASSED OUT HAS BEEN WELL-RECEIVED. KIM HENDRICKSON
  3. WE ARE ACTUALLY HAVING OUR EASTER PARTY TODAY ALSO, THE ACTIVITY AIDES HAVE HIDDEN SOME PLASTIC EGGS (FILLED WITH CANDY, OTHER ITEMS THEY CAN GIVE TO GRANDCHILDREN, ETC) AROUND THE LOUNGE AND THE UNIT AND AT 1PM THERE WILL BE A EGG HUNT (STAFF'S CHILDREN ARE COMING IN TO ASSIST ALONG WITH RESIDENT CHILDREN/FAMILIES IF THEY WANTED TO COME). RESIDENTS ASSISTED WITH DECORATING. WE ALSO HAD A JAR FILLED WITH JELLY BEANS OUT ALL WEEK AND VOTES WERE PUT IN AS TO HOW MANY IN THE JAR AND THE PRIZE IS A VERY LARGE STUFFED BUNNY (RESIDENTS/FAMILIES/STAFF ALL INVOLVED). WE HAVE A STAFF MEMBER COMING IN DRESSED AS THE EASTER BUNNY TO ASSIST WITH THE ACTIVITIES AND THE RESIDENTS APPEAR TO BE LOOKING FORWARD TO THE DAY. AS MANY OF THEM WILL BE GOING OUT FOR EASTER DAY (SHORT LOA'S OR FAMILIES COMING IN), I THINK DOING SOMETHING PRIOR TO EASTER DAY IS A GREAT IDEA, HAVE FUN... KIMBERLY HENDRICKSON
  4. HI - I AM ALSO THE DIRECTOR OF SOCIAL SERVICES AND ACTIVITIES, HAPPY TO SEE OTHERS OUT THERE - OUR AIDES HAVE ALWAYS BROUGHT RESIDENTS TO ACTIVITIES AFTER THEY HAVE GOTTEN THEM READY, ACTIVITY AIDES WILL ALSO ASSIST, IF NEEDED, BUT PRIMARILY IT IS OUR AIDES THAT BRING THE RESIDENTS TO ACTIVITIES, NOT SURE IF IT IS STATED AS A REGULATION, BUT IT HAS NOT BEEN QUESTIONED BY OUR AIDES AND THEY FEEL IT IS PART OF THEIR JOB DUTY. EACH AIDE IS ASSIGNED CERTAIN RESIDENTS FOR THE DAY AND THEY WILL BRING THEM INTO THE LOUNGE WHEN THEY ARE READY OR IF THEY WANT TO GO TO AN ACTIVITY. THE WORKING RELATIONSHIP THE ACTIVITY AIDES AND THE AIDES ON THE FLOOR IS VERY GOOD. I HOPE YOU GET THIS WORKED OUT, IT DOES SOUND LIKE AN INCENTIVE WOULD BE A GREAT IDEA AND IF ADMINISTRATION IS BACKING YOU, MAYBE HAVING A STAFF MEETING WITH STAFF WOULD BE A GOOD IDEA.
