We have an activity called This is your life. We take a couple hours and interview a resident about the events in their life and take notes. To make a presentation to show other residents we need pictures as well. I used the activity departments iPad and took pictures of her family photos. The resident is able to express their feelings and their pride really starts to show. I learned a lot from this resident asking her questions 1 on 1 and then I was able to share her life with the other residents. The resident's family was able to attend the presentation and they were really impressed. I feel closer to this resident doing this program with her.
