Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) require that all the places that get reimbursement from the federal government have a registered or certified activity director. Activity directors must be licensed or registered in the state they are working in. The activity director has many duties.

Preparing a Monthly Activity Calendar
Each month, a licensed activity director must prepare a calendar that reflects the day and evening group and individual activities that are offered to the residents each day.. The calendar should be easy to read, distributed to everyone and posted for all to see.

Assessing Residents Interests and Needs
When new residents are admitted, the director will ask them about their interests past and present. Also one finds out about their strengths and limitations.

Revising the Activity Programs
From time to time, the director may have to make changes to the activity calendar besides the usual changes done each month. This should be done when the interests and limitations of the residents change.
