Activities needed

Recommended Posts

We have a main sitting area where visually impaired residents like to sit. No food is allowed in this area. I need ideas for activities or things they can do with little to no supervision. Thank you for any suggestions that you may have.

Residents always love to hear music. You can play the music by themes. One day do a spa session with soft therapy music. Then the next day you can do 60's. Music can really set an environment!!

We also have this at our facility. I was thinking of bringing out the cart and doing soft hand massage and also weaving projects may be good to give them something to do with their hands. We have residents who will pick little pieces of paper and things up off the floor and I thought this would be good to keep their hands busy. Putting some magazines and books in that area also may be good. Also maybe word searches or folding some wash clothes.

My name is Samantha Cathcart and I had a lady like that. Named that tune was one of her favorites. Have big enlarged bingo cards available for the vision impared people. Have alot of aromatherapy/name the smells game and have a bag with alot of things in it that only you know is in there and make it a contest. They close their eyes while they stick their hand in the bag to feel around to guess what's in there. Whoever names the most things in the bag, they win. Take walks around the building for them to see the big stuff that they used to see before they loss their sight. Have a taping of famous people that say their famous sayings and ask them do they know who it is and give them a few clues. When I play the giant crossword, make sure you tell them what the word starts with and how many letters it has so they can get a good guess.

     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
