Helping each other through Lockdown

Recommended Posts

 

Weve heard from several asking the exact same question. Most are working from a hall way, resident in doorways, masks, hallway bingo, beachball on a string. Some are having a hard time being heard thru a mask.

Let us know what you are hearing and share it with us

 

thanks Pennie

NCCAP had a great video showing how to broadcast live through your facility's digital channel.  They showed how you can use the ZOOM app and a laptop to broadcast live.  Any ideas of what could be done with that.  I was thinking exercise, spiritual programs, music.  Any other ideas?

Hello, my facility is on lockdown as well and we are only allowed to do group activities outdoors while keeping the residents 3 feet apart. Any suggestions besides Bingo?

They are also not allowed to share activity items.

Thanks for the link! We do not have the ability to stream on the TV or have a channel, nor do we have any smart devices, tablets to do activities! I am worried the state will ask about what we are doing regarding technology.... we are of course calling family members with their own phone but not skype, etc.

I saw a great post on Facebook (Activity Directors Desk). They had their residents hold up a white board with messages to family and friends. 

Some of the messages were: "I'm doing well; call me sometime; Love, Mom." " I miss you; I love you, Mom. " "I hope to see you soon! Love, Grandma."

     Thank you for correcting the information that was released. I recently took the test for certification with NAAPCC and it was a very comprehensive and thorough test. It was not a simple easy test to get you certified. You had to know the information in order to complete and pass. I would recommend this avenue to anyone especially if finances are a struggle for MEPAP I & II. I did purchase the book for long-term care seventh edition and without that I would have struggled.

    Celeste is awesome!! Anytime i have a question she gets right back with me and she is very informative. At first I didn't know if i was going to like the new course just for the fact my MEPAP course was the own pace and I work Full time plus have 3 kids. But i am loving it! It is very structured and with due dates I feel like i am holding myself more accountable for completed assignments sooner than later. It has actually been a beneficial change for me.. Thanks so much!!!

    Good Evening I wanted to let you know that I had completed mepap 1 and had only a couple weeks left of mepap 2 so I had looked at path 2 and have taken the activities test and passed so just sending in the application. I wanted to thank you for giving all your time to us even while Kathy was ill. It didn't go unnoticed, you was a great support and helpful at ideas or even different ways of changing thoughts to positive while feeling defeated. Thank You Stacey Passa AP-BC
