ACTIVITIES- F248

  • Facility

  • Ongoing program of activities

What’s An “Activity”?

  • Any endeavor other than routine ADL

  • Resident participates

  • Intended to enhance her/his sense of well-being

  • Promotes or enhances physical, cognitive, and emotional health.


It takes more than one kind

  • Program of Activities


The all important assessment

  • Obtain detailed information (even if the Activities rap does not trigger).

  • What are the resident’s life long interests?

  • What does the resident prefer?

  • Are adaptations needed?


Care Planning

  • Documented identification of the resident’s interest, preferences, and abilities.

  • Any issues, concerns, problems or needs affecting the resident’s involvement/engagement in activities.


Care Planning (cont.)

  • Activity goals based on measurable objectives (i.e., resident’s desired outcomes)


Care Planning/Measurable Goals?

  • What’s wrong with this goal?

  • The resident will attend 3 activity group programs a week.


CARE PLANNING (CONT.)

  • The care plan should also identify the disciplines that will be involved in assisting the resident to carry out activities.


CARE PLANNING:Accommodations

  • Facilities need to consider accommodations in schedules, supplies, and timing to optimize participation


INTERVENTIONS

  • Individualized, based on:

  • Resident’s history

  • Resident’s preferences

  • Resident’s strengths

  • Resident’s needs


INTERVENTIONS (CONT.)

  • Reality orientation and large group activities that include residents with different levels of strengths and needs are not recommended


INTERVENTIONSAddressing Behavioral Symptoms

  • Take into account a resident’s pattern of behavioral symptoms

  • Activities should be presented prior to when symptoms usually present themselves


Any Suggestions??

  • Resident constantly walking:

    ~ Provide a space and environmental cues that encourages physical exercise, decreases exit behavior, and decreases extra stimulation


Any Suggestions?

  • Engages in name-calling, hitting, kicking, etc…

    ~ Calm, non-rushed environment

    ~Structured, familiar activities

    ~ One-to-one activities/small group

    ~ Exercise and movement activities


Any Suggestions?

  • Disrupts group activities, uncontrolled crying, anger, sensitive to too much stimulation:

    ~ Activities in which resident can succeed, broken into simple steps. One-to-one, short, repetitive, slow.


Any Suggestions?

  • Resident goes through other’s belongings:

    ~ normalizing activities such as stacking canned food onto shelves, folding laundry, providing rummage areas in plain sight (e.g., a dresser)


Any Suggestions?

  • Resident withdraws from previous activity interests/customary routines and isolates in room/bed most of day:

    ~ Provide activities just before or after meal time and where the meal is being served (out of the room)

    ~Providing in-room volunteer visits, music, or videos of choice.

    ~Encouraging volunteer-type work that begins in the room and needs to be completed outside the room.


Any Suggestions?

    ~ Include in social programs, small group activities, service projects with opportunities for leadership.
