Do you guys have any fresh and new quarantine ideas? I am doing Hallway Bingo, coloring, painting, we are polishing nails and reading books already. What are you guys doing that is different?

Great ideas! I like using virtual jeopardy and  word competitions to engage seniors, residents and students in isolation/quarantine.

For example, you can give everyone a word and have them write down as many words as they can find/make with the letters in the word. Whoever finds the most words gets a token or star, for example. Choose a new word for the activity each day and then, at the end of the week, the person with the most token wins some sort of reward or prize.

I like this activity because it's a great way to exercise the brain and (re-)recognize common letter combos such as consonant and vowel pairs, patterns, prefixes, and suffixes.

I actually recently created an anagram solving guide detailing helpful strategies to reorganize words to form new words. You may find it beneficial when explaining the exercise and providing tips: https://www.crosswordsolver.com/anagram-solver/unscramble-letters-guide

We have a facility wide quarantine so I'm kind of at a stand still with ideas.  I am new to this facility but not the job and it is hard because I know nothing about the residents here and the staff are already worn out.  Somebody help me please!

     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
