Father's Day 2009

Recommended Posts

For Mother's Day, we had a tea, and now for father's Day, I would like to have a Dad and Me social. I thought that since dad's were associated with cars and tools, we would have the father's paint model cars with their children all the while having lemonade and cookies! I will let you know how this goes...

We've done "Dad Bingo" and have had grilling out and fishing parties, but this year I am going to do a "Pinewood Derby/soapbox Derby" where the men (much like boy scouts) will create their pinewood cars, paint them, race them against the other male residents and then have Sub Sandwiches for lunch. I will let you know how successful we become, or if anyone has done this before and have words of wisdom, let me know. :(

I'm not sure what to do here for Father's Day. I only have 10 male residents on all units combined (3 on AL, 7 on Skilled) and they're wildly varying functioning levels, awareness levels, and interests. At least with women, a tea party is liked by 95%. But it's harder with men. I don't really have the budget or help to do anything big like a cookout....I'm still thinking.

ideas: racing car, horse racing, sports event movie, Western movie in background or as part of the activities;

serve beer/no-alcohol beer as 'shandy' ( beer and lemonade ) maybe borrow some chunky half pint glass mugs;

father's day 'toast' speeches or speech competition;

'shoeshine' box or table, where the guys get their shoes polished;

serve hot dogs, devilled eggs, 'pigs in blankets', potato chips, crackers with pimiento cheese etc- 'lazy party food'!;

put a sheet cake in a shirt box & decorate as a shirt with tie, collar etc;

craft table so the visitors ( or staff ) can make cards, rosette badges, small craft etc for the dads or with the dads;

cut some ( donated ) neck ties in half for a match 'em up game;

kite-making;

some kind of toss/throw game...men always seem to love that!

Things you'll never hear a father say:

 

10. I'm lost- let's stop and ask for directions.

 

9. Of course you can go out on dates on your own now you're thirteen sweetie!

 

8. I noticed that all your friends have a certain "go to hell" attitude ... I like that.

 

7. Here's a credit card and the keys to my new car - help yourself.

 

6. What do you mean you wanna play football? Figure skating not good enough for you, son?

 

5. Your Mother and I are going away for the weekend ... you might want to throw a party.

 

4. I don't know what's wrong with your car. Just have it towed to a mechanic and pay whatever he asks.

 

3. No son of mine is going to live under this roof without an earring!

 

2. Why go and get a job? I make plenty of money for you to spend.

 

1. Father's Day? Don't make a fuss- it's no big deal.

You could just do something as simple as Coffee and Donuts.

     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
