;-) For the roombound resident the surveyors will look for you to include activities that were of past interest to the resident. Such as their musical interest. you will need to set up times and whose responsibility it is to play the music fo rthem in their room. We had a resident who was on tube feeding and her music waslayed for her by the nurses who set up her feedings that way it was at the same time every day and it was a consistant activity that we knew would get done. We also read to her about current events and kept her in touch with what was going on in our community. She did not speak much only in short phrases, but woudl respond positively when we would have a different topic each week that we would use for our conversation with her. We used different types of stimulation with each topic. Of course she was NPO but we coudl use the other 4 senses to stimulate her and we saw the best reactions come from this. This resident was a tacher so we kept her in touch with what was happening in our local school system.

Gardening can be created for them on a tray table. Help them put plants in a container garden, mist houseplants, or make their own terrarium with herbs or grasses. They can keep what "they plant" (even if you do the work) at bedside for future visits. A separate calendar would be very difficult if you do not have one person monitoring and completing these tasks. Maybe a log at bedside would be better. A place to record the visit/activity & responses for family or staff to see and read.
