When I look at this it seems very busy but it is repetious and I need some of that. Minta
  6. My name is Minta and I am in Texas BlueBell Country, I handle General Assisted Living and beginning stage dementia and alzheimers Assisted Living. I have worked mostly with dementia and alzheimers for a little over five years, I have gone through some of the old forum topics for Alzheimers Activities and found good ideas that are slightly different than what we do, I diffinately will be adding some of the ideas to my calendar. However I am in a rut so to speak and need some freshening up. My group is from just standing and not really seeing to weak and tired to busy bodies and I love them all. Finding something that they can all do at the same time other than music or walking in the garden is becoming progressively difficult we are so diverse. I take all suggestions and support. Minta
  7. Paula, I do not know much about your area, but in Texas we have the ability to find a center that will let us do a practicum at the facility and take a class at the same time. I am taking an advanced class now and my practicum is where I work. There is also a national organization that you can check on NAAP - National Association of Activities Professionals or NCCAP - National Certification Council for Activity Professionals or NCTRC - National Council for Therapeutic Recreation Certifification. I work with Alzheimers and from what I read you are special in the way you cared for your mother and the ideas you used, blessings for being inventive. If you feel called to do this then I hope it all goes well and I hope you will have as many rewards as I have. Minta
