Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone ,

 

My name is Gwendolyn and I am new to all of this I just started my MEPAP1 course.

 

I currently work as the Asst. Director of Activities at Hickory Ridge Nursing and Rehab. We are a 170 bed facility catering to ages 30-65 mainly , alcohol/drug patients who are medicaid based with no family and friends. We also have the nursing side along with a Bariatric program, and 2 lock down units , one is alzheimers and the other is Behavioral.

We have are hands full.

 

Well my actuall need for guidance is this I have to do a report on 2 Activity Directors that have been in the field 10 or more years and I am having trouble locating anyone.

I was hoping if any of you out there meet these qualifications that you would allow me to ask you just a short series of questions, about 5 if that is possible please email me with a responding email and I will send you the questions.

 

I appreciate any help given thank you to all of you and I am honored to be joining such a wonderful group organization.

 

Yours Truely,

Gwendolyn :rolleyes: :D

Gwendolyn... I have been in the field for 13 plus years-three and 1/2 as a Director. If I can help you out in any way email me at craftelady@windstream.net. I presently am an assistant and looking for a directorship. I have my directorship and have taken the MEPAP 1 class through the internet. I reside in PA and would be willing to answer your questions if you still need help. Linda
