Planning An Open House

Recommended Posts

I need some activity ideas for an "open house" that our daycare center for alzheimer clients is planning for th end of April. I thought of taking a lot of pictures before then and displaying them, showing what activites we do. I would like to plan some special activites that day to "show us off "to the public. Any help will be appreciated!

Depending on how large your community is, you could have various entertainers scattered throughout the building, maybe a juggler, guest speakers, a hands-on arts and crafts object going on, and refreshments. You could also make it a specific theme and go that direction.

 

Hope this helps!

One year we had a Italian themed Open House:

We passed out fliers throughout the community,at the senior citizens centers,and hung them up at bussiness'.We offered the community an Italian Dinner for $1.00

we had Speghetti,salad,garlic bread and a drink. We had italian decorations and music throughout the facility.We decorated the tables with red,white checkered tablecloths and candles.Then we had a tour of the facility,followed by

an evening at the movies,we showed a Sofia Loren movie(don't remember the name).Then we had spamoni(italian ice cream).It was a real success and our residents had a great time.

     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
