Meaningful Activities for Elders Living in Care-Communities 
Activities are best viewed as everyday recreations that are meaningful for the resident and which are the responsibility of all staff. Yes, the Activity Director leads planning but all staff must participate in the implementation of everyday activities. The key is for activities to be meaningful (person-centered) and enjoyable for residents and doable. "when am I supposed to do this? There just isn’t time!!!’ Sue will help your staff work together to plan and incorporate person-centered activities into the daily routines of residents and their staff.
