What Features Would You Want in an Activity Director Management Software Program?

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone!


My team designs software programs and we are looking for feedback to build an Activity Director Management software program that can meet the needs of the majority of Activity Directors. We would like to know what's important for you to be able to do your job more efficiently and what you would like to be able to track and report on so we can include your needs in our software program.


From what we've researched and learned so far, it's important for you to have the following:


  • Electronic Calendar Management (a link to the online calendar can displayed on your website/social media pages, advertised in newspapers and online, displayed on your closed circuit TV, and emailed to your residents and their families) 


  • Printable Calendar Support (the calendar must be enabled to be enlarged and printed)


  • Electronic Resident Profile (enter important details about each resident, including their activities interests) - what else would you like to track on the Resident Profile?


  • Share notes about residents with staff


  • Share notes about residents and their activity participation with the resident's family


  • Online sign up for activities


  • Electronic resident check-ins for activities


  • Report on resident participation for each activity and roll up totals for each activity category


  • Report to the resident's family the percentage of activities they participated in and the percentage of increase or decrease in participation from last year/month - what else would you like to report to the family?


  • Report on resident participation trends (favorite activity categories and levels of engagement)


  • Report on which activities were well received and liked and which ones were not


If you can explain exactly what you need in a software program, we would greatly appreciate it. We are building this for YOU so your feedback is critical.


Thank you!

     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
