I am a CTRS by trade, but have recently become an Activity Director at a CCRC, and would like any help I can find on Attendance forms. We only have about 26 Residents on our healthcare unit that we care plan, but it's hard to keep track in any uniform way the attendance of AL and Independent Residents. I need a simplified form if anyone has any suggestions. The only offer I got was a form that I've seen before that shows percentages by counting the amount of activities you have each month, and figuring it the levels of Residents, etc., and it still doesn't make any sense to me--HELP!!!

I was just wondering, When I fist took this job I was an AA. My participation records had 3 months on the same page. Then when I got the AD job the old AD made new participation records that only had 1 month on them. I dont know why she did this and I think it was her own idea. We have not had a consultant for me to talk to. It takes me along time every month to do these and I was just wondering how everyone eles does it 1 month or 3 months. And of course the 3 months would only be good for long term residents. Thanks for any feed back

Hey All,

I am pretty new to this myself but this is something that I think I have improved since I got here. I have each long term residents activity participation for the whole year on one sheet. I also made a folder for each resident that includes theiractivity assessment, care plan and activity participation. It is really simple but so organized and it seems to be working great here. If anyone is interested send me an email and I can shoot you over a copy of my resident participation sheets...Janice_Major@beverlycares.com. Or they were really easy to make I just created a chart in microsoft word with 31 columns(days of the month) and 12 rows(months). Then at the end of the chart I made a key such as C=coffee hour, M=movie time...1=active, 2=passive etc. I hope this helps!

Hi, we went through so many forms over the years B)

Now we use our monthly calendar and put each residents name on a calendar. We have all our programs on the cal and I add a 1-1 spot on each day to record 1-1's. We just highlight each program that they attend. Much easier to eye ball at the end of the month which programs each resident comes to.

Every three months we tally all the programs in the past three months and how many times they attended each program. It sure is an eye opener on what residents slip between the cracks.

Overall this process is less time consuming than alot we tried over the years and you can see at a glance who is getting missed.

Hope this helps

Linda :-)

Evening everyone.....

I am also interested in easier documentation, I am doing the calander highlighting, but I am trying to incorporate the residents progress notes on it if possible. I would be interested in any facilities forms that you are using that you dont mind sharing. I was put in the Activity Dir. position after our past AD had a stroke and therefor I have not had any mentorship to assist me.

 

I would appreciate any feed back possible

 

My email.......justokfine2000@yahoo.com or fax # 254/582/2479

 

Thanks

Question for the folks who highlight calendars:

 

Sounds good, but how do you track the independant activities such as crossword puzzles, reading, internet use, watches tv, etc? I would like to get rid of the attendance form if we could find a way to get that tracked.

 

Thanks in advance!

Heide

I have a good idea about keeping those particiaption logged. I have my own separate book/binder. And my facility has a cenus sheet that is generated daily with room numbers and names and i use that daily and indicate the activities of the day in the bottom or top of the cenus sheet and color code each activity and then code ny eack persons name what they attended. State Loves it! It's easy to read and simple to look at to referance back for assemnets and charting your medicare notes and for care plans!

:-D Hi! I am using calendar highlighting and then writing in the independent activities. I then use my progress notes for any other things that need to be mentioned such as active or passive participation, how the resident spends most of day if he/she prefers to stay in room, etc. I am looking for new assessment forms right now because mine are horrible! They are not specific on types of activities or what kind of emotional basis they are in at the time or how their attention span is on interview or anything like that. Kinda hard to write a care plan with half the information i need not on the sheet...If anyone happens to have a good assessment sheet for initial/quarterly/yearly please let me know! I am also looking for forms for most everything else. My e-mail is cld2599@yahoo.com

Thanks!!!!

I have a paper with all residents name on it and room number at the top of the paper i marked off lines to write in the activity and the lines run straight down the paper leaving me little blocks to check off what they have done for a day or write in what we done if it was not a scheduled activity there is also a blank i the top of my paper to fill in the date i have a notebook that i start the month off with putting a calender in a plastic sleeve and putting it in the notebook the i add in my documentations each day after we have the resident council meeting i also put in those minutes behind the sleeve my calender is in my notebook is big enough to hold these for a year and then i file the whole notebook in my cabinet and get a new one to start a new year every year is always a fingertip away if needed to look back at. State says they love my way easy to understand and find everything.

I use the calendar highlighting system. There are usually blanks at the beginning or end of each calendar. I have a key placed in those to capture the independant activities. For example: 1-TV, 2-music, 3-sensory, 4-visitors etc. I also have that yellow-participated, green-passive, blue-left program, orange-sleeping. If you would like a copy let me know. dianne_wegner@beverlycares.com

I also use the activity calender and highlight. In my progress notes in the individuals chart, I note any type of independant activity that they do. I also keep track in my 1:1 tracking book for those residents on 1:1

I am just new I should say older just restarting again and am going to the calendar idea, on the back of each residents calendar I have made it in to lines for documentation for 1:1's or residents progess for my personal use. What do you all do for documenting 1:1's and who in your opinion would need them. In my new facility its not being done as faithful or as often and am concerned about me not doing it as much cause I am use to a differant way of thinking.

 

 

Thanks

Just wanted to do a quick poll. How many of you have worked in facilities that include the daily participation logs in the residents charts? Did that work well? Were their problems associated with it? Also let me know if you have never worked in a facility that filed these in the resident chart. Thanks, Terrie

     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
