RE: Rely to a recent post
I envy most of you....My facility only has 15 residents. We are in a small town. I only have 1 volunteer that does 1 activity twice a week and I barely have residents participating in that activity now. I only have about 4 residents that participate in about 50% of my activity calendar. I've worked at this facility for 1 year now. Before that, I was a part time activities assistant, so I was not in charge of planning or implementing...just helping with certain activities. This entire year I have played the game 'trial & error' with my calendar/residents and still feel like I'm losing the battle. I love my job but I want to be better at it.
I'm searching for anyone on here that is in a similar community to mine.
Assisted Living Facility with 18 residents or less (No Arbors), small town, no major stores nearby besides Walmart, no mall nearby, no university nearby, in a rural area, less than 2 volunteers available to you, medium budget.
If anyone can help me with similar circumstances, I would be so grateful!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you!!!
