  2. Bucket of Games 1 Bucket of Games 2 SALE Ends Aug 5th 1.888.238.0444 Our NCCAP MEPAP 1 & 2 Begins Aug 6th - Make sure your Activity Staff is qualified before your next Survey ActivityDirector.org Activity Directors Network was founded in 1996 on the idea that we could help create elderly care that dramatically improved the lives of those we all serve. Activity Directors are the key to creating environments that we ourselves would be excited to live in. We envision facilities that feel like homes, not institutions. Facilities that celebrate our resident’s individuality and allows them to live with dignity, purpose and joy. We believe providing the best education available, with the most talented teachers we can find, is the way to make an impact. Each and every single one of you are the revolution that is changing everything. Thanks for being a part of The Network. Copyright © 2019 Activity Directors Network, LLC All rights reserved.

  3. Science for Seniors Melissa Morgan, Activities Coordinator I have developed a monthly program called “Science for Seniorsâ€. It is a science-based interactive small-group program suitable for difference cognitive and physical levels. Science for seniors is visually stimulating, mentally stimulating and has a good wow factor. My goal for the program is continuing education in a fun way. I get most of my ideas for different experiments from Pinterest and from searching science websites meant for teachers. I do not have a strong science background but I try to learn enough about the projects that we do so that I can explain the science behind the experiment and also answer basic questions. I got the initial idea for this program during MEPAP 1 when I was researching activity needs that weren’t being met. I have a resident who is very interested in science and I was not offering any science specific programs. I came across the idea for Science for Seniors on the web and decided to give it a try. I have a mix of residents who are completely cognitively intact, residents who have late stage Alzheimer’s, and everything in between. The program is designed so that it will keep the attention of someone with Alzheimer’s while at the same time offer an enriching experience for those residents who would like to learn something new. A particular experiment that the residents loved is a surface tension experiment. It teaches a lesson, is fun to watch, uses basic ingredients that most people have around the house, and has instant results. Tools/ Ingredients needed: Plate for each resident attending Food Coloring Whole Milk Dish Detergent Dropper or Q-tip Optional- Coffee stirrer, spoon, or toothpick Steps: You will want to do this experiment at a table and preferably not near rugs just in case of a spill. Start by placing a plate in front of each resident. Pour whole milk onto plate so that the bottom is covered plus some. Whole milk works best because the high fat content of the milk creates stronger surface tension or sort of a skin on top of the milk. Results may be better with whole milk but other milk may be used and should work. Have each resident put about 8-10 drops of different colors of food coloring on the plate of milk. Do this when the milk is still and instruct the residents to resist moving the plate or stirring the colors. The surface tension has not been broken yet; the food coloring should stay where it has been dropped rather than blend. Have the residents guess what will happen next and then fill a dropper with dish detergent. Drop one drop of dish detergent into the center of the plate and watch as the colors swirl! The dish detergent is denser than the milk and has broken the surface tension causing all of the colors and milk to mix. If you do not have a dropper then you can dip a Q-tip in detergent and then touch the Q-tip to the center of the plate with similar results. Once the colors stopped swirling I let the residents uses a coffee stirrer to mix their colors more- just for fun!
