Use these activity director resources to help you with your day-to-day tasks as an activity professional:
Gather fun activity ideas by reading through our quick tips, like how to create a chocolate tasting for your residents, how to host a fun full moon party, and how to get your residents using your facility’s library again. Even learn the #1 way to get your seniors involved in your musical activities.
Find even more ideas in our October 2023 newsletter, like organizing a fun activity where seniors pass out candy to visiting trick-or-treaters for Halloween, and inviting residents to make cheerleading pom-poms to use to root on their favorite NFL team on Sundays during this football season.
To quickly and inexpensively create buzz among your residents for an upcomingspecial activity, place lots of balloons around your facility in the color theme of the activity (e.g., using red, white, and blue balloons for a fun Independence Day event). Be sure to put out the balloons at the beginning of the day, so that residents will be reminded throughout the day about the upcoming activity.
