Hi Kathy.. visit http://www.activitydirector.net/Activity_Downloads/ the AD Network Hompage - Downloads area and you can download a sample calendar, newsletter, and resident council forms pack..


.... also visit http://www.activitydirector.net/Activity_D.../p2_articleid/7 the AD Network Homepage - Activity Articles and read the article on HIPAA privacy by Chris Loga for the rules about publishing resident information.. try to refer to your residents by firstname or nickname only when in print.


... also try the search at http://activitydirector.net/forum/index.ph...Search&f=10 to look for other ideas post throughout the message board.. search for resident council .. newlstetter .. facility newsletter .. bulletin boards .. activity calendar etc



hope this helps , Pennie

     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
