Hey all...Its been some time since i've been here. :-o I need some help. I have a resident who likes to fold clothes, wash clothes..yada yada. Every time someone gets her something from laundry to fold, someone else takes it away from her. I was wondering if anyone knew where/if there was a place you could order a kit from that comes with items to fold. My Admin says that we need to get one, I have looked in ENasco, S&S, and Polkarobics. She won't let me just go to the local dollar store and get the stuff. I don't know why. Probably be cheaper but, if ya'll have any ideas please let me know. THANK YOU :-D

Go to the local discount clothing store and purchase childrens clothing, infants clothing, and adult clothing...enough to put in a suitcase (oh yea get the suitcase too) and you have your kit. Mark her name in all the clothes so if they get misplaced they will eventually return to her.....no kits available....I could make you one, charge via my business.......

I have found baby clothes work best (because they are small, so cute and facilitate reminiscing). We purchase many of our supplies at garage sales, auctions and donations. I often run the clothes to laundry and have them put in the dryer for a few minutes so they are nice and warm when the residents start folding.

:-D When I worked at a Group Home for DD adults, we had Yard Sales as a fund raiser. Anyway, we would go thru the Nickle Saver and find all the yard sales with Addresses and send them a flyer asking for donations. Look for some that advertise clothes and see if you can get then to donate to you. Quite often people are glad not to have to pack things back upafter a sale. GOOD LUCK Lori :lol:

Dear CJackson,

 

Yard sales, thrift stores have great prices on baby cloths,curtains,womens clothes

that you can purchase. You could buy a cheap laundry basket and once your resident folds the clothes you can have her put them in there . Keep in your office and every now and then unfold them and leave in basket so she may fold them again! I hope this will help! WEDA in TEXAS

     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
