I'm just about done with my MEPAP 1 class and am looking for jobs.  (Hoping to do MEPAP 2 while working.)  So far I am flabbergasted.  I've only found out about five places so far, but it seems that the pay for an activities assistant is roughly the same as that for a fast food worker.  (Unions, anyone?)  Hopefully I'm wrong, or at least the pay goes up after a little while.  I've looked below and that doesn't cheer me much, but I see it does vary from place to place.  Can someone please tell me what an activities assistant and what an activities director can expect to earn per hour when first hired, after one year, after five years, and after ten years?  This is in New York State, between Catskill and Delmar (Greene and Albany counties).  Thank you very much!

I know it has been a few years since you wrote this, but in the Buffalo, NY area, activities aides can expect to earn minimum wage or a little higher if they are just starting out.  I am not sure about AD, but maybe 40K at a large bed facility?

   I need to know what the salary range is for an Activity Director?    I was wanting to move further south , Texas to Florida, does anyone have any estimates of the wages being paid in these states?

     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
