  3. Tweet +1 Hi Everyone!! Well it's only three weeks from today for our Great Irish Show of the Year! I can't wait and I hope you can't too! Ticket sales are percolating and I hope you've already got yours cause they're going to go very quickly when all our advertising breaks loose shortly in advance of the Holiday..! As you know from reading my letters we'll have an Irish Fiddler, Irish Step-dancers, an Irish Mandolinist/Banjo Player and of course our almost all Irish Comedians.. ! So get ready to have a Very Irish time! And don't forget if you're celebrating a birthday to tell us when making your reservations..we love celebrating birthdays!! Did you know that Blarney is as old as the Irish? It is only in relatively recent times that it acquired its own shrine in the Castle in County Cork. Each year some 70,000 blarney believers climb 120 feet in search of eloquence and hang upside down to kiss the stone. It is said that it will endow whoever kisses it the eternal "Gift of Gab". The seat of eloquence is a non descriptive block of limestone about 4 feet long, one foot wide and 9 inches high said to be worth about thirty million dollars. Who Knew? Did you also know? That there are now more Polish people in Ireland than there are native speakers of the original Irish language Gaelic. Or that.. The largest town in Ireland is Drogheda, with a population of 40,956 (up 6.2% since April 2011) A motorway in Ireland was delayed by 10 years and then rerouted to protect a tree that was thought to belong to fairies. Think that Los Angeles would ever do that? and lastly.. for my dog lovers.. Irish Wolfhounds are the tallest dog breed in the world. I've seen them they're huge! And your lrish Limerick for the week is.. Cosmetically Lil of Kilquade, Had beauty that ne'er seemed to fade, When tanned by the sun, She looked twenty-one, But she looked fifty-six in the shade. And now an Irish Toast! May all the Leprechauns be near you to spread luck along your way, and may all the Irish angels smile upon you on St.Pat's Day! My Toast.. Have a great week and smile upon all you meet! Always, or Mise Le Meas! (Sincerely in Gaelic) I Live to Laugh!

  4. Hide and Seek Groundhog Shadow View File This File is a Groundhog Shadow .gif - Print several copies and hide them around your facility on Groundhogs day. The residents who find them are entitled to a prize.. Its a great intercom game for Groundhogs Day For your Newsletter: from Wikipedia ------------------- The weather lore was brought from German-speaking areas where the badger (German: Dachs) is the forecasting animal. This appears to be an enhanced version of the lore that clear weather on the Christian Holy Day of Candlemas forebodes a prolonged winter. The Groundhog Day ceremony held at Punxsutawney in western Pennsylvania, centering around a semi-mythical groundhog named Punxsutawney Phil is held on February 2nd. The tradition goes that Phil, the forecasting animal, will be emerging from its burrow on this day and if he sees his shadow due to clear weather, it will retreat to its den and winter will persist for six more weeks, and if he does not see his shadow because of cloudiness, spring will arrive early. While the tradition remains popular in modern times, studies have found no consistent correlation between a groundhog seeing its shadow or not and the subsequent arrival time of spring-like weather.

  8. I have a resident in AL who has mild to moderate dementia. Recently we have noticed more decline. The thing is that he is obese and gets around by power chair. It has not gotten to the point where we need to take the power chair away but he is always up and down and it got me thinking; of all the dementia training I’ve had and all the discussion about wandering the subject of wanderers in powerchairs never came up. What do you all think; have you ever discussed this before? More and more residents are moving in with power chairs and I have residents who should have never passed the test we give. They go too fast and some run into things and now I have a wanderer whose apartment is right next to my activity room and when I mentioned it to the RNs at my work , they said they have never heard of what to do in that situation either so we are all researching it

  15. I was in Activities for 5 years (5 years ago) and a lot of things have changed since I was in the game. I started back in December, and I'm looking for new Activity Participation Forms to encorporate. I'm not a fan of the forms my building is using. They were created by a former director. I've looked at Med Pass forms and like them.. but feel like there should be a space to write in specific items. What you are you all using? Are you creating your own? Are you using a standardized form? We currently put a copy of our calendar in the chart and highlight the resident's participation, as well as fill out a form. I do want to continue the highlighting method for our use, because it makes it so easy to see who is doing what. However our "legal" charting forms, I'm not happy with. Help!! feel free to email me samples of what you are using! mtbrighton@bellsouth.net
  16. Raising Funds for Alzheimer’s Dementia Research The National Senior League (NSL) announced today that on July 16th it will host a National Senior Wii Bowling Day to benefit research into Alzheimer’s and dementia as well as related projects. The NSL hopes to set a world record for the most senior Wii bowlers participating on a single day, asking Wii bowlers to roll a single game on July 16th. Each bowler will be ask to contribute $5 to be donated through the NSL to research into devastating diseases, including Alzheimer’s. In addition, the NSL will ask individuals and corporations to donate $1 for each recorded strike. Dennis Berkholtz, started the NSL four years ago with the mission of providing senior’s with a fun, competitive and social environment and with the ultimate goal of raising money for Alzheimer’s/dementia. Berkholtz’s father suffered from dementia. “Using the NSL to raise funds for Alzheimer’s/dementia is my way of honoring my father for raising a great family and giving me the opportunity to achieve success both in sports and business,” said Berkholtz. The NSL has established the NSL-ALZ Foundation to manage the fund raising efforts. The foundation will support Alzheimer’s/dementia research and support programs focused on the importance of early detection. It will also work to develop a program to recognize and honor Alzheimer’s/dementia caretakers with a vacation break from caretaker responsibilities. The NSL-ALZ Foundation is working closely with the Atlanta based NeuroScience Foundation whose mission is to support research to accelerate treatments that significantly improve the lives of people suffering from devastating diseases, including Alzheimer’s Disease and Stroke. “We are honored to be chosen as a recipient of the day’s fundraising activities, and delighted to see the commitment of the National Senior League to support Alzheimer’s research,” said Susie Brown, Executive Director of the NeuroScience Foundation. The National Senior Wii Bowling Day will target the 115,000 communities in the senior industry many of which have Wii bowling programs. Over the past three years of managing Wii bowling championships, the NSL has provided competition for Independent Senior Living Communities, CCRC’s, Assisted Living Communities, Nursing Homes, Rehab Centers, Senior Centers and Affordable Housing Communities. More than 225 communities and over 2,000 Wii bowlers have played in the NSL (www.nslgames.com).
