Hello, I am new to the whole AD thing but I do love crafts, organizing, and making people smile. I am the AD at a nursing center for long term care in Louisiana. We already play bingo, pokeno everyday but not many of the residents like to do arts and crafts?? How do I get them all involved. Also I am doing an Olympics for National Nursing Home Week and any ideas would help. Also any activities that are successful would be great too. I plan on doing a "SENIOR" prom at the end of June. Thank you
