It's really important for Care Home Wellbeing & Activities Coordinators to have access to the right tools for the job. Too many of them are expected to provide the required support for residents without having the essential tools.
Have you been provided with a laptop?
A laptop is ideal for planning future activities with your residents.
Finding FREE resources (word-searches, colouring pages for adults, etc.)
Finding out about Special Days, Weeks & Months
Art and Craft ideas
Creating Posters to inform residents and visitors of upcoming events
Creating Activity Boards
Creating Resources to compliment their own ideas
Connecting with other Activity Coordinators for support and sharing of ideas and experiences
Contacting Entertainers to make/confirm bookings
Booking Theatre, Museum, Library visits, etc.
Creating Notice Board Events Calendars, etc.
Joining schemes that help to raise money for amenities fund
Emailing, events details to friends and relatives to keep them in the loop
Befriending other Care Homes elsewhere in this country or abroad
Sharing ideas with others in the care team, encouraging them to really get involved and share their ideas too.
