HI, Pennie. I've been AD for 8 yrs now and started doing evening activiies about 2 years ago. I have dinner and a movie where we set up the lobby like a dinner theater and have classic movies for my residents, board game night, evening reading hour, on Friday or Saturday nights Movie w/ refreshments (popcorn in the old popcorn boxes, m&m's, Charleston Chews, ect....) any type of old candy they might have had in their days. We also do outside dinners with soft music out in the courtyard. I'm still trying to come up with some different ideas for evenings and for Sunday's. So, if you have any idea's please let me know!! :) I hope this helps. Mance Z.

You might try having a eveniing bingo game. Also have a dominoe contest (you can even bring in other facilties to spice things up) Offer the faciltiy to outside groups that your res can join or sit in like Red Hat Society, Red flannel club, reading clubs, Girl or Boy Scouts. Bring in guest speakers that residents & family members would enjoy hearing. Gospel music &/or bible study. Don't forget to ask your family memebrs about their special interest & if they would be willing to volunteer for you.

 

Sounds like you have a good program in place just add a little variety.

     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
