Memory Care Residents

Recommended Posts

I have 17 residents that range from mild to moderately dementia stages.  What type of trips do you take your Memory Care residents We attend bus rides and some specific trips but would like to get other ideas.

 

Thanks,

We took our memory Care residents on a light tour at Christmas time. They really did enjoy it a lot. They seem to relate to the lights and yard decorations. It was a delight to see them so happy.

I work in a day center with participants with mild to moderate memory loss. I've found you can do almost any activity you would do with a senior group as long as you adapt the activity. For instance, we play the game "loaded questions" but don't use the board. When you remove some of the steps to an activity, it makes it easier and often just as much fun. We also do drama club so long as the person's lines are all highlighted so they can follow along more easily. Let me know if you need other ideas!

     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
