Top 5 Stress Relief Games in 2020 Posted by Yana Yelina | Apr 15, 2020 Source: Mental Health Matters You certainly feel stressed from time to time: negative emotions and fatigue quite often come while you’re at work, and it seems really difficult to get rid of them, distract, and relax a little bit.

    Hello, I am a student in Recreation Therapy and have a question for one of my assignments. In a nursing home facility, who actually fills out the RAI? Does each discipline fill out their appropriate section? Do activity directors fill out the activity assessment? Other than the RAI, do Activity Directors use other leisure assessments or only depend on the RAI. Thank you so much.

  18. I Am Bored: Brainstorming to Alleviate Resident Boredom by Kathleen Hughes, ADC There are lots of postings lately on the numerous Facebook pages for Activity Professionals about how the residents do not like their activities or that residents, families and other staff are bored with the activities offered. There are other comments about how residents ask for specific activities and then do not attend or ignore requests for preferences or suggestions. We also have “younger” residents looking for activities that they are interested in and do not want to be with the “older” residents. Perhaps
  19. Generation Z is pulling a Z snap on Baby Boomers and in true Generation Z fashion, there’s a meme about it. ‘OK, Boomer’ is popping up everywhere on the Internet as a clap back to all the Boomers’ criticism of the younger generation. The Boomers have been vocal in dismissing Generation Z as a privileged, lazy population with their heads up in the clouds. Accusations of wide spread Peter Pan Syndrome have been popularly noted and expressed from the older generation. Their judgements have not fallen on deaf ears. The response from Generation Z is a message of anger and blame. Gen Z believes the

Leisure pursuits are crucial for residents living with Alzheimer’s disease, particularly those which offer and encourage engagement opportunities and much needed cognitive stimulation. The Approach to discovering leisure pursuits to offer engagement and stimulation is the same as any resident assessment process with one very significant
  22. I was recently passed an interesting article from our instructor Kathy Hughes, ADC that I think we can all relate to. Nursing home food is often compared with hospital food and is rarely accused of being appetizing. However, the nationwide push to make care homes more person-centered has extended well beyond care and is now attempting changes in the dietary department. It may be hard for some to believe but prior to November 2016 family members weren’t allowed to bring outside food in. The value of sharing recognizable comfort food with a loved one in the throes of dementia could easily be rec
  23. There is generally some level of dread when state comes in for a survey. No matter how prepared you are there is always a chance that something could not go according to plan or there may be something you have overlooked. We often see members of the network discussing this possibility on social media and there seems to be a need for some Quality Assurance. For this reason, we have created a couple of forms for you to use as an evaluation tool. It allows you to get some perspective, evaluate your direction, adjust accordingly and improve your department and the lives of your residents. It’s a w
  24. Dehydration and the Elderly A widespread blanket of increasing rising temperatures is expanding across much of the country. . . . And of course, hot weather always increases the risk of dehydration. Older aging populations are vulnerable to climate change-related health impacts for a number of reasons. The body’s normal aging process causes the body’s systems mechanisms, that are meant to protect us from dehydration, to work less efficiently as we age. The elderly population does not have the same internal thirst signals with age progression and consequently do not take action to reach the
