Activity Coordinators often don't have the resources they need to do their job in a way that they feel happy with.
That's why I started the Bright Copper Kettles CIC website.
I have been an Activity Coordinator, I know what it's like to try to support residents with meaningful. purposeful and fun activities. Person-centred activities are necessary in the provision of care with dignity, supporting the wellbeing of each resident.
Here are 3 freebies I think will help you.
