"I have been involved in Assisted Living and Skilled Nursing Facility Administration for over 30 years. I LOVE your website- the info is easy to use, and comprehensive. I typically write all of my own policies, procedures, forms etc. but since finding and joining Providers Web...I have so much more time to Direct our Operations....We have 7 licensed Homes for the Aged, Assisted Living Homes in the state of Michigan - a total of +/- 700 older persons, many with diagnoses of dementia. Just wanted to say thank you for making this information available, at such a reasonable cost!"

This document explains basic information regarding activity calendars.

Most states have regulations that require activity calendars.  Facilities licensed for seven or more persons usually are required to post notices of planned activities in a central location.  In most facilities a copy of the planned activities calendar must be turned in to the administrator for the following month for approval before the 25th of each month. Activity Calendar

Community Contacts and Volunteers
The Community Contact Worksheet is an excellent tool to help develop community support contacts.  It lists numerous community organizations, and includes many links.  When you find local community contacts, target them for recruitment in your volunteer program.  The Activity Contact List, the most important document to maintain, is the master contact list of everyone involved in your activity program.  Use the Group Activity Master List and the Individual Volunteer Activity Master List to develop your program.  As you assign someone to an activity, make note of it on your master list.  Activities that remain to be assigned then become apparent.  Be sure to add new contacts to your Activity Contact List. Activity Responsibilities

Ideas on activities to raise money for the Activity Program.

There are many reasons why a facility may want to raise money and the activity budget does not always meet these needs.  For example, you may want equipment and supplies to expand the activity program, purchase a large item such as a kiln, video equipment, a sewing set for visiting grandchildren, go on a trip or for a charity. Whatever the reason a fundraiser can be a lot of fun and bring people together and is a great theme activity for the residents. Money Raising Activities

Activity program description and general policies. This document also lists responsibilities for the activity director.

A good Activity Program is planned and carried out by a care team of staff, family, friends, residents, and volunteers working together. The programs should meet the needs of the residents as the residents define them. In other words, the programs are done with the residents, not for them.  Residents need to be made aware of activities, both by daily morning announcements, and by the posted monthly calendar, as many ways as you can repeatedly inform the residents of the activity events.

The Activity Director shall be responsible for carrying out the provisions outlined in the state laws. Program Description and General Policies of an Activity Program

Resident and Family Councils provide an important element to a community, residential care home or assisted living facility; they help to improve and enhance facility-wide services.

Resident and Family Councils help provide an important element to a community.  Under the basic Resident's Rights, these types of Councils are allowed. Resident Councils have been around for a while, however, most states adopted regulations addressing Family Councils after the 1987 Nursing Home Reform Act was passed.  The Act guaranteed the families certain rights.  These rights include: ... Resident and Family Councils for Community Care Facilities
