We alway have a musical game once a week to help the patient think and remember things in the past.

We first put put some chairs in a circle and put some age appropriate music on . Then we pass a nerve ball around the room even tossing it to each other. We then stop the music and which patient have the ball have to answer a question about the song being played. we also use this same game with questions about themselves and others questions as well.

Have you tried to using a Gurdy Ball (good sensory balls various shapes and sizes) or a waited beach ball? Punching balloons are always great for a laugh I also use them to play Sporting Trivia Played to various kinds of music. I give our Guest a chance to choose the music and sometimes we will incorporate it into a sing-a-long. We pause the DVD and try to finish the song.

 

:wub: Good Luck!

     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
