About the block party thing, the closest activity that I have ever planned was a courtyard party, we assembled a bunch of the staff and family members to set up craft tables, the fire dept., the ambulance company each set up a table with food and bbq, they brought a Fire Truck, We contacted the churches that held services in the facility, they had members that did various crafts and carnival food vendor equipment. It was more a carnival for the kids, with lots of crafts and food for the moms and dads. One fella brought his petting animals, my husband made funnel cakes(that was a carnival in itself, dietary helped him) Of course the adminin and her husband did their thing, The residents had a competition for the best family secret apple pie recipe a couple of weeks before the carnival, and with this info we were able to gather the ingredients and conduct a apple pie baking activity and sell our pies and secret recipes to raise money. The ladies did a knitting booth and class, where the little girls were given an opportunity to sit and try their luck with a pair of needles and yarn, grocery store donated stuff, florist donated leftovers for a crafting booth, had the water balloon launch made from an old bra and some bungies, had a big time... Good Luck!


thanks, Pennie :-)

What I have seen activity director do with block parties are:


Have a party at the end of each hall, a different hall each week. Only those living on that hall come to the party. This allows the residents to get to know their neighbors, plus a little alone time with different residents. Hopefully this might get some of the less active resident to participate, due to the smaller group.

     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
