Hello everyone, my name is Scott  and I have worked in long term care for the past 12 years. I am currently employed by Waterview Hills Rehabilitation and Healthcare in Purdys, NY. My entrance into the healthcare field was a happy accident. In 2005 I graduated from Adelphi University in Garden City, NY with a B.S. in Music. Soon after graduation I set out to look for a job where I would hopefully be able to use music on a day to day basis in some capacity. By chance I stumbled upon an job listing for an Activities Leader in Scarsdale NY. The add went on to state that musical ability was a plus so on a whim I submitted my resume, landed an interview and was ultimately hired for the position. This began my career in the field of activities. Over the years I have enjoyed working closely with resident to improve their quality of life though recreation.

     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
