Adult Education

Recommended Posts

I just wanted to share an idea that has worked out well in my facility. Our local high school has an adult education program. It is funded through a grant from state of California, and all of their adult school teachers are paid through this grant. The principal of our high school got in contact with us about 2 years ago, and offered to send us teachers that could teach a variety of topics, such as Armchair Travel, Home Economics, Quilting, Arts & Crafts, exercise, etc. The end result of all of this is that we have an adult education teacher in our facility 17 hours a week that we don't have to pay for. She is amazing. It is a great idea especially when most of the time we aren't able to do everything that is required of us. I usually have my staff conduct 1:1 room visits during the time that she is here, or my staff is performing another activity so that we maximize the amount of time our residents are involved in activities. All you would have to do is contact your local adult education program and see if they are able to offer something along those lines. Hope this helps.

     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
