I am a new AD my previous job was as an Ad for maternity leave all paperwork was pretty much done for me. I now have my first AD job and am in need of some help with paperwork. Upon admission I have my MDS as well as a 3 page assessment that my company has set up then a quarterly, there is no MDS for Q so do I just put in a progress note  significant change(resident no longer able to be res council pres) progress note then my annual I do an MDS as well as yearly am I correct? Plus I have residents that are under the age of 55 and there are different activity requirements and documentation for those residents, what is it?  HELP please!!!!! I am so lucky my facility census in 80 so I have a small amount of residents, I just need to get into the grove.

Thank you

Patty AD

There is a book call Activity Director Bible.   I'm about to see if it's available it appears to have a lot of information....Did you take the MEPAP1 class? This class is alot of help.

Patty put in progress notes as changes occur. Surveyors look at Admission and annual.  quarterlies are due upon facility policy but should still be done to reinforce document. The progress notes will help keep a track.


I learned this in class

     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
