Rolling Movie cart

Recommended Posts

We have a movie cart with a large tv, vcr and dvd player that we take to the residents room so they can watch any movie they choose on a larger screen, without any interruptions.

Dana I use to also use the same type cart for movie night. If a resident was bedfast for whatever reason. I would get a movie & fix snacks with drinks & then invite a couple of resdients to join the bedfast resident in their room to watch the movie. This was usually done prior to me leaving for the day. I enlisted the help of the CNA to check on them & help out as needed. It bacame a very popular things & the residents formed a great friendship during the process.

That's a really good thing!  We have several smaller DVD players that we loan to the residents.  But our large screens are in the communal activities spaces.  I love the idea of a few residents hanging out together.  Great for our rehab residents!

Pennie thanks for the tip! I will definitely try having other residents join. We have movie socials, huge tvs in our dayrooms but giving the in-room resident the social connection is a great idea!

I have a dvr player in our sattelite room that plays on every tv in the building. Great for short term residents & in-room. They just have to tune in on a certain channel.

Ccollins that is a really neat thing to be able to use.  I love the idea of the movie cart we have  a cart that we are currently using for our library cart but it would be perfect as a movie cart and some of our residents would really appreciate being able to have that at their disposal since some cant have tv due to billing and other issues.  Thank you guys for this great idea!!!
