Every afternoon at 4pm, I have a program called “Live&Learn”.

A daily “Live&Learn” program is a nice addition to any activity calendar. It gives you and the residents a chance to either discuss daily events, news, and trivia or special days.

As I said before, distributing special cards each week when you pass out the weekly calendar gives residents who do not come to group activities a way to get involved.

If you do not pass out weekly calendars, you can distribute the cards every Friday, at an activity or during 1:1 visits.

You can then use the cards during the 1:1 visits that day or another day.

At the monthly birthday party, I pick the winners from those who have completed and turned in the cards for that month. I give out a small prize or certificate to all those who participate. This adds a nice touch to the monthly birthday party. It gives you a way to honor other people besides those who have a birthday that month.
